Default Best TC4 Tires for bashing?

I just picked up a Team TC4 with the steel outdrives all around. I'm going to be dropping a Mamba Max 7700 into it and I need a good set of tires to hook up with paved street (there's a private street near my house thats wide open). What would you guys recommend?

As a general rule the softer the tyre the more grip but will not last so long.

If you are not racing seriously it maybe more beneficial to be using harder tyres that will last longer,but wont grip so well.

for unprepared street bashing, i would suggest starting with the stock kit tires. they last qute a long time and hav pretty good traction on dusty pebbly parking lots.

I'm running the HPI Vintage on my Yok basher, no problems with them... The tires made for bashing will be much more consistent throughout their life than race tires which need to be heated and degrade with heat cycles. It's the same thing with 1:1 tires.
