Default what tires to buy for a rustler

I just bought an electric rustler two weeks ago and have already worn out the rear tires. I have been running on grass, dirt, and on pavement some. Is there a good all around tire that will last longer than the stock ones. Should I buy two sets of tires one for dirt and one for pavement? If so, whitch ones?

If performance isnt a huge concern for you then i'd recommend a set of proline dirt hawgs. These things are impossible to wear out. They definately prefer tighter surfaces - but in very loose dirt they make the rusty a real handful to drive which is great fun if you're just bashing with mates.

Considering you destroyed the standard tyres in 2 weeks im guessing you bash on pretty solid surfaces....

For a bit more traction the dirt works have a finer tread and bit a bit better in the loose stuff.

Either of these can be put on all 4 wheels.
