Default 1/8 Buggy Tire

I'm getting the Associated RC8.2e in 2013. I'm looking for some tires for it. I was looking t the Pro-Line Badlands or the Duratrax Lockup. I ahve the Badlands on my Flux XS, but have not tried the Duratrax tires. How do the lockups run if anyone has had them? I just thing the Badlands have lugs too big for the 1/8 buggy wheels and they would tear of wear quickly. Though I don't run on road with them.

What will you be doing with the buggy is my first question for you. If youre just bashing, any tire with some big lugs should work ok all around, however for racing there are more things to consider. How hard packed is the track? How much of the track is groove, and how deep is the stuff on the side if you miss the groove?
