Default On road tires for my offroad buggy?

Ive noticed lately that I have no where to run my buggy except on parking lots where some kids set up skate ramps. Although I love running offroad, Ive realized thats the only place I can run it. So now I need on road tires since my buggies tires get worn out to quickly. What are some good onroad tires for a nitro bugggy? I dont want to spend a lot of cash since these are only for bashing but I dont know much about onroad

We use a set of old off road tires to break in our motors and they work great and are cheap since they were gonna be trash. They are completely bald, been using the same set for about 3 years having gone through about 30 motors.
