Default HPI Sport 3 Tires/Wheels Grip

I am relatively new to hobby grade RC cars. I have started with a traxxas latrax rally and just recently purchased an HPI RS4 Sport 3. I'm wondering what everyone recommends for good grip on road tires, something actually rubber with a tread. Thanks in advance.

Are you just bashing in a parking lot or driveway? If so, the HPI X-Pattern are pretty good for that. The HPI V-Groove are good as well.
If you're looking for a on-road/off-road or for a really dirty surface, the HPI Super Radial or Pirelli Rally tires are good.
I'm recommending HPI tires because they are decently cheap and can be found at virtually any LHS.

If you're looking for a high-end tire for competition, you'll likely want something with a better compound. They'll wear a LOT quicker than the HPI's, but provide much more grip and precise response.
