So I have an EB410 that I bash with on asphalt and the front tires wear down quick from the brakes! Can you help me find some of the hardest tires made? I want them to last a really long time! Thanks for your help!

I don't think it's the brakes, chances are you are wearing the front due to "scrubbing speed" by making hard turns on power. The trick to reducing tire wear is to brake when going straight, then turn off power, then accelerate after you've completed your turn and that will significantly reduce your wear ;)

Here's the hardest compound tire I know for 1/10 4WD Buggy on street:

If you ever decide to upgrade to the EB48, then you would be very happy with the Supra Sales tires, these are so hard that they almost act like drift tires.... I don't think you'll ever wear these tires out:

In addition to what Bill said, you might need thicker oil in your center diff. If you're just bashing on asphalt I'd run at least 200k in the center, that will keep the power more evenly distributed when you're on throttle.
