Default Street tire alternatives?

I just bought an RC8T RS and was wondering what street tire and wheel combo would work best for it. A friend lent me a set of HPI Phaltlines mounted on HPI Blast Wheels. Any recommendations before i buy my own set.

The best tire I tried was made by Twister Tire USA. "#1099 Rally Game "B" Mede radiali". I Purchased 4 pairs 2 month's ago $16 a pair and now they are no longer on there website. If Twister is reading this these will sell like hotcakes if they sold their tires as a Latemodel tire. I really love these tires they work great on my Latemodel and lasted wear like iron on high traction.

I haven't used these but Alpha tires from South America pass the eyeball test for me.
Also Ipenema makes street tires too. Look here too
GT class--buggy-based on road!

Plant in Italy burned down last year and some GRP tires are avaiable on ebay. I also run OFNA slicks when I brake motors in, in my street. they work good and show no wear at all.
