Default Which tyres?

Hey guys
I am looking for some 1/10th scale tyres

They have to be rubber and preferably radials (or some tread pattern)
Belted would be better but not fussy

I see a lot of HPI M compound tyres. How does the M compound grip?

Any help is appreciated

Hey, I think theres a wide range from the site ' www.rcmart.com ' try them they sell rims, tyres, or FULL WHEELS ! easy to browse aswell and shipping is not a BOMB for tyres...

I've never had an R/C im sorry...but im sure if there Grippy and rubbery..and a little expensive..above the cheapest..then they should be fine..also it depends on the ground/surface you use it on..

Well its a basher so I don't like the "expensive" part
Not to mention the high rate of the US dollar which makes things worse

BTW, any UK online hobby shops? UK pound is going bad
