You may also be able to look into the scale flight for tires / wheels. My great uncle had a huge plane that had some bigger 4 lug wheels on it. Hes been gone for some time now so I don't know where he got his stuff from

I was looking into these guys for a scale 4x4 project I had dreamed up. The sight kinda sucks but they have some bigger off road type wheels and tires.

The Brp fit the Losi 5iveT?? I’ve been looking for good street tires
Yes, u just need the irp adapters which u can find on Detroit Performance rc's website but I think it's a waste of money considering your not running a big bore like a 46cc ect, but if u really want em go fir it, just my 2 cents

8 inch is common for go karts so I think I'll get sum cardboard and wrap it around my stock tires till it's 8 inch tall and see what it looks like tomarrow, I don't want it to look redicullous. 7 inch looks fine but I dunno bout 8.
Keep in mind these tires are temporary (unless I find a great 1/4 scale wheel/tire or something) until I can buy some brps

Every street tire I have seen or used has much less traction than off road tires. Many videos out there of Hostile, GRP, and others that didnt seem to get traction at all.
I took MadMax Giant Grip wheels/tires and sewed them with 100 lbs rated kevlar braided kite string, then CA glued them.
Not sure how fast you plan on going or if the slick is mostly for looks but this worked well for me...

This video shows the tires pretty well at 62mph. (I have had them up to 72.5mph)
