Default Best STREET tires for 1/8 buggy?

Could you guys over here in the on-road forum tell me your preferences or ideas to get the best traction for back street type racing?

Thanks

Losi use to make some of the best onroad tires I've ever used. But they discontuned them. If you find any by Losi, buy them quick.

They might be. I used them on my IGT2, and it made a huge difference in handling. The car hooked up with those tires. My LHS said that he's been trying to get more, but said they discontinued them.

Would a belted or standard foam filled tire be better for drag racing in my MM2200 powered buggy?
