Default tires for bashing grass / concrete

so I am new to rc and have been mostly driving on grass and concrete.
What would be a good tire for me?
I have been looking at the badlands but they are pricey so I have been looking at the mohawks / big blocks on ebay since they are much cheaper.
whitch would be better or is there a better tire out there for grass / concrete driving?

For grass get the badlands/big block tires, the big blocks being the better choice imo as they're far cheaper than badlands and quite a bit harder which makes them last longer. You could drive them on concrete but the big pin style thread would wear out quickly so id recommend getting 2 sets of tires, one for grass ( Big blocks or similar threads) and one for concrete ( slicks will do just fine!).

Everything works on concrete so just buy used tires for that.

If you want one for both, get HB Protos. But as stated above, concrete is going to eat them up, it's better to get slicks for concrete.

For bashing, go to SupraSales on EBay. No need to pay top dollar for name brands.
