Default Apex buggy tires from First Turn Racing

Exactly. I think they are $40 for 4 pre mount buggy. The softs weren't quite an M3 compound, but handled great and the wallet felt heavier

When it comes to tyres there is
AKA, Pro-Line and JConcepts.
they cost more, but also last a lot longer and have better grip. (pay me now or pay me later)

I agree to stay away from the cheep brand nameless tires. It all comes down to the inserts. When the foams stink ( cheap ) the tire will blow out in no time. The least expensive tires I will use are VP pro. They work great and the wear is good but even those need to be run with AKA or Proline foams
