Default 1/8 on road wheels and tires???

Can some one help me out im looking for tires and wheels for my inferno gt2, that will handle some parking lot bashing. I will not be doing any racing on nice smooth tracks, all parking lot driving. What are some good tires, and wheels and where can I get them?

+1 on this recomendation. Get the treaded tires for runnin on a rough surface. If you go for a harder tire, it will last longer, but not as much tracting, but we know sliding is FUN!!!!

agree on the sweeps!

other than that you might want to be a bit careful in large parking lots or on roads. Any little pebble will throw you sailing when you hit it at higher speeds and when you come down under power there is a good chance of blowing out your year pinion going into your diff.... In addition if it is not blown off any little pebble or piece of gravel that kicks up into your spur/pinion will get caught and strip it.

These are fast cars and I used to do this as well, but after fixing several things I decided to keep it on the track only. Better surface and way funner to drive the car.
