Default ld3 and parking lot racing.

Recently I took my ld3 rtr to an open parking lot with the stock wheels and tires. I had a pattern I was running across the open lot. I was on the 4th tank and the tires were coming off the wheels because there was no tread left. how long should those tires last?? I bought some foams for racing next year. I will do some more lot racing before the season starts so i want another set to play around with. so my next question is should I get treaded tire or slicks?? thanks in advance.

The amount of run time you get will always depends on the abrasiveness of the surface you're running on and how you treat them. Obviously, if you do donuts, etc. in the parking lot, they won't last long. You'll probably want foams for racing.
