Default Good 1/8 asphalt tire?

I have an Ofna GTV2e. The stock tires are like rubber drift tires, the apex tires are the same. I bought some cheapo tires from china that hook really well but they need good foams in them to perform. I have a buddy with the treaded ofna tires and they seem to do well. What are you guys running for 1/8 street courses and oval?

Tires depend on where you are racing / playing

For playing on a non prepaired parking lot, I use the OFNA Treaded, or if I want more grip go to the Sweep EXP Treaded 45 or 50's.

For racing, Sweep 45's and 50's have been the ticket at the two largest GT races this year. Get the ROK rims, Full White Insers and EXP tires. 45's will have a little more grip, with the 50's needing to get warmed up but will last longer.

I don't need super grip but a descent lasting tire would be nice, the ofna treaded are on my list for sure. Its an asphalt oval and its about as prepped as an old parking lot. No pot holes or anything.

Bumping.

Any recommendations on a quality tire for 1/8 17mm hex sedan or buggy?

Running a Castle 2200kV with a 4S.

I see some on eBay. I've searched on here and didn't find anyone running them. Don't want to spend $40+ on potential junk that won't last through 2 packs.

^ Thanks!

I ended up getting a set of GRPs. If those don't work out I'll try those GTS'.
