Default Tires and their differences??

Hey guys. I'm new to the Hobbie and and have raced on carpet before and know about tire glues and slicks in the back but I can't find a carpet around me for at least a 2hr drive which isn't comforting at all so now I'm stuck with the pavement and parking lots. I've found some parks with soft rubber type material it if I really want to light it up I have to hit pavement....AND IT'S SMOKED THE TIRES FAST. Now is this normal that pavement will eat tires this easily FOR ALL TIRES or is it just that I happened to have cheap tires maybe (tamiya )???
I'm just curious if there is a specific brand that are better and last longer??? And what's the difference between the tires? Other than just on road and off road. Any help would be appreciated in this. Thanks in advance

I've used this tires forever in parking lots with my touring car and they are still going strong! Bad news is that I think this tires are out of production but you can still find them, just make sure these are the correct size.
