Default F103Lm/ Pan car tires?

hey guys,

the tires that come with the Tamiya F103 LM are shotty and way too smooth to grip almost any surface except carpet.... can i get rubber tires that will actually grip like my Nitro touring car or am i stuck with buying foams??? i like rubber better than foams just for they have longer life spans than foams do... if there are foams that have really long life spans with decent grip what would you guys suggest??

lol i thought that battery cars had like 5-8 min. run times, i ran the F103 Lm today and got an 18 min run time full throttle, beats my Nitro R40(13 Min)

With tamiya direct drive chassis I would recomend foams. In those cars foams last a lot, not as in nitros.
