Default What tires?

I have a HPI RS4-3 and I am in the market for new tires. Currently I am running foams and I don't like the idea of how quickly they get worn out. I was thinking of switching to rubber tires. Should I go with slicks or a tire like the HPI X pattern? Also should I get belted or non-belted? And what compound of tire should I get? I run mostly on concrete tracks such as parking lots. Any help would be aprreciated.

Default Nitro On-Road > What tires?


Never had much luck using Foams on concrete.

'Take-Off' 27CS or 32CS (Rubber Tires) with a medium to firm insert have always worked excellent on concrete for many of us.

HPI inserts work well in all brands of tires and offer 5 different firmness ratings.
