The slicks will last longer if you are running on fairly clean surfaces and give you more traction. If you are running in a slightly rocky or dusty area then get the radials as they will give you better traction.

The "radials" might last longer, but they're pretty crappy tires. They're not very grippy, and they feel and smell like they're made out of vinyl or something else besides rubber. They actually feel kinda slippery...They are the ones that come on the Street Force GP, and everybody (also) says they don't give much traction. Now the slicks are annother story, they smell like rubber, and are much "grippier"(how's that for a word?) and work surprisingly well considering the price...
