Default Can anyone recommend a relistic set of tires for me?

I am working on a project car and am looking for a realistic low profile tire.I have checked yokomo,Tamiya,and HPI but the only low pro tires they have are hard compound for drifting and I am not building a drift car.Everything else from these companies has to high of a sidewall and won't look very scale for my build.
Suggestions??? Thanks!!

Low Profile Super Radials from HPI have a lower sidewall than the normal treaded tires: http://www.hpiracing.com/products/en/4521/ not sure if that is low profile enough for you. I like the Advan and X-Pattern tires for 90's or 2000's look, as well as the Super Radials for an 80's racer look. There are other tires from Japan/Asia that have cool tread patterns too, I'm just not as familiar with them.

I have a few sets of the super radials but don't care for the tread pattern very much,it has more of an all terrain look,I want something that would be seen on high performance vehicles, like Falkens,advan,etc

They don't have 1/10 on road tires on their site, the ones that came on the traxxas 4-tec?
