I have been looking for the same tyre. I have tried Asia,States,Euro but still nothing.
I have settled for the GRP serpent rim from RC Mushroom in Hong Kong $9.50 Rear & $10.50 Front, 40 all round

hello, here in Italy it's easy to find this type of tyre, because GRP makes them not only for GRP brand, but also for Italian Mugen supplier Schepis.
Generally cost is about 7 /couple.
However I confirm that they are really good tyres!
