Default 1/8th buggy tire opinions

I know every track will be different but I am looking for some good generalizations on tires out there. For example: what tires are good for a little dust, loamy and wet, or no dust/grooved. Any major brands are fine with me.

General rule of thumb is smaller pins for hard packed to bluegroove conditions and the loamier to looser surfaces the bigger the lugs you want to use. Colder surfaces run softer compounds and warmer surfaces run harder compounds.

Good advice.
Also for surfaces which are prone to rutting, big lugs catch and cause weird handling issues. So smaller pins/bars for those.

Haha yeah I do with the scte . Ebuggys the most to blame so they dont allow them on our 1/10 outdoor track. But 4wd scts are as bad as ebuggys in ripping out the track.
