Default 1/10 sedan off-road tires

I'm going to be driving a 1/10 4wd sedan on decomposed granite. Take a rock of granite and smash it up with a giant mallet, ends up like hard packed sand underneath, loose layer of gravel up to 1 inch thick on top, but usually less than an eighth of an inch. What tires would be recommended?

All I can find are the HPI tires. Pirelli "T" and the original rally tires with big nubs. I can't really tell which one would work better, any suggestions?

Thanks

the whole purpose of rally is the skandanavian flick and to run different type of surfaces. i think a dirt carpet mix and some model trees and rocks would be cool

There is also the TC3 with the rally conversion kit. You can also modify a Losi XXX-S. I plan on going the second route, unless I can pick up a DF-03ra or RS4 Rally cheap.

This is sweet. Could someone please tell me what types of surfaces you run on? Is it carpet with some jumps?

I've thought a lot about Rally style R/C racing. You could take an indoor, electric off-road track (or outdoor nitro) and create different surfaces, IE gravel, pavement, dirt. Run it timed with no one else on the course. I think it would be a blast.
