Default Traxxas Bandit tires

Hi everyone, I'm new to RC and loving it so far. I'm looking for a set of pre-mounted and preferably beadlocked pavement tires for my Traxxas Bandit. Absolute top speed isn't as important as handling to me. The car goes plenty fast for my old reflexes but I would like to improve the handling characteristics of it . Any advice would be appreciated

Beadlock tires are usually just used for rock-crawling. They're too expensive to get bashed up on the street. I'd give up that idea right away.

I don't see any pre-mounted tires for road. I'd probably get a set of Pro-Line Hoosiers for the rear:

...and Inversions for the front:

Some basic hex wheels from this page would be fine:

Mounting them yourself is no big deal; just get some tire glue and watch your fingers. It's just really thin super glue.Once the tires and foams are on the rims, dab a bit around the bead and you're done.

I bought a set of Duratrax Bandito Belted tires for my Traxxas Rustler 4x4 VXL to improve traction and handling over the smaller original tires. These tires have more of a street style tread and have much better handling and traction. They are also much cheaper than Proline tires.
