Default touring car tires wheels needed

I need some nice wide racing slicks or a nice soft grippy touring tire for a 1/10 touring car, I want to top speed test this thing but my tires are narrow and not very grippy and I can't get more then half throttle. Let me know what you have, a cool high downforce body that's New or painted and not drilled yet would also be something I'm interested in.

Yeah. they don't balloon and are pretty soft and last a good long while. Just go for the belted ones.

Some guys use Foams for speed runs. I can offer you a set of four (mounted and trued) foam touring car tires for $20 shipped to a U.S. address. They are "Red" compound (the red wheels are incidental), about the hardest of the natural rubber tires, but still grippier than most any rubber tire you are likely to find.

PM if interested. This is a pic of what you would get:
