I dont necessarily have a model or brand for you but you should look in to something with a larger tread pattern. Something with a medium to large size nobbies. Usually if you go on your favorite brand tire website they give a good description on each tire and what they should be used on.

A good rule of thumb to follow is - the bigger the terrain the bigger the tread, the smoother the terrain the smaller the tread.

That reminds me of one time when a buddy of mine went into a Hobby Store at a local track and asked for Losi Red Ifmar pins and the guy replied "They don't come in red, all of the tires are black."

lol

wow, that is almost as good as me going in to a hobby shop and having the guy behind the counter ask me what an o.s. tz is while he is holding a cv-r that he was trying to sale to me.
