Smile tire help/discussion

so i need to find a tire that works good. i live in a area where the dirt is hard as hell but has sand/dust over it, then little rocks everywhere. im in arizona if that helps. im looking for a set of tires that will give me enough traction to actually be able to go in a line for the most part, ive got bowties on and it will not grip it slides everywhere and no my finger is not trigger happy. also whats a good tire for the street, i need something that will last and not be worn out after 5 runs.

what vehicle are you running? 1/8 or 1/10? Buggy, Truggy?

I don't think there's much you can do about running on the street honestly. Just try not to let it skid too much.

Traxxas Anacondas should be about the right size.

Imex Road Runners or the bigger coyotes get med compound for longer lasting less grip

Also the Proline 30series rims. Road rash 30 series tire.
