Default Tires?????

I am building a mrx4x for dirt oval and am looking for some taller front tires. Can anyone tell me who makes the tallest tires?

Really 71 views and nobody can help me thanks guys! I bought this car used and have no manual and it has been years since I ran on road so as I remember it we used to cut half of the tires away to get the ride height, but now I got some tires and they are already so thin they do not need to be cut. This is an experiment and may not work well but I need to have about 8mm ride height or close to it in the front and now have about 4mm. A slightly taller tire would be fantastic.

No one I know of has ever run a 1/8th onroad car on dirt oval so no (though I admit, I have thought about it, haha). 77-78 mm is about as big as they usually come.
