They look like speed-mind. I think magma is the importer. Have you tried the "blue devils" from ofna? They are a GRP tire. 9.99 a set from mdp/nitrohouse.

THis is the Blue Devil tire, they are a good tire, but the rim is so hard that the nut has a hard time digging in and I have seen racers loose wheels time and time again because the nut backs off. But for traction, you can't hardly beat them.

It is not the rim that causes the issue it is the 2 degree off-set that leaves less axle for the nut to grab. This not an issue on my mtx-3 as the car needs 2 degree off-set.

The rim is vey soft and warps at the smallest bump, but they are cheap and have great traction.
