The big question is where are you going to be using it? If parking lot bashing and playing around in the street, i would go with one of HPI's 1/10 street tires or some cheaper foam tires from Jaco (Nitro Shoes). If you plan on taking it to the track you are going to need a better quality foam tires and specific shores (hardness) for the track, car setup, and temperature. Kyosho makes a nice foam wheel that most hobby shops carry but they run a little expensive. Two big companies we use here in FL are Contact RC and Matrix. Hope this helps ya out

40 shore foams seemed to make it nice all round for me, 37s - didnt like them at all, actually found it to have LESS traction!
Otherwise a decent set of rubber wheels should do you fine. But I loved 40 shore all round for a very long time.
