Default Best 1/8 buggy tires?

So the Kyosho micro pin tires on my inferno are almost gone, and i need some good racing replacements.
Caliber M3?
Holeshot?
AKA I-beam?
J-concepts?

90% depends on what surface your running on or bashing.. for longer lastings-And a variety of surfaces. Ibeam from you list is your best bet.. but alot depends on the track or what you intend to run on with them...

I will be running in mostly loose dirt, short grass, and on the track.

If its bashing.. i.e. Non racing.. I would look at something like Proline Knuckles or Badlands. As they will be ok on most surfaces, and will last a long time.. as some holeshots or caliber's would be good but wouldn't last anywhere near aslong ..

i was thinking either calibers or i-beams all around soft compound. Apparently i-beams last longer though.

well.. tbh if your not racing.. go medium or M2... as soft will just wear faster.. and unless your racing.. you dont really need the extra grip ect.. as they will wear faster.. a good tyre would also be Proline Crimefighter in M2-good allround tyre for track use.. and grass ect too.. that would be a good choice personally..

I think im the only one who runs nothing but med. crime fighters on almost all surfaces. I think they're great. And I got a box of 24 mounted so I cant beat that haha.
