what are you asking for? recommendations for which kind to run or how much they'll help your times?

I'll answer both since I'm bored, but if wear isn't much of an issue go for either m&h or et streets. If you want them to last a while then go for nitto 555r's or toyo tq dr's. I've run the 555r's and tq's on a street setup and had et streets on a big n little setup, et streets are deff the best imo. 555r's and tq's are basically the same in my eyes. similar grip, wear, etc. only difference is 555r sizing runs a little smaller and the tq's seem to be cheaper.

as far as how much they'll help, it all depends on the 60' times you have gotten now and what your cars capable of. assuming you have a '12 v6 like it shows in your info, then a mid 1.7 60' is probably pretty likely with a set of dr's. if your previous best times were with 2.0 60's then you can probably expect close to half a second in et just with tires. I'm sort of guessing on all that tho since I dunno for sure what you have, your mods, your previous times/experience, etc.

Drag radials are good.

Thanks for all the info. The car is supercharged, putting down 452 at the wheels.
1st 2nd and 3rd are tough when in it! I really don't want to run without them.

well then a set of dr's are deff a must. Basically it comes down to what I said earlier, do you want something stickier but that doesn't last as long, or that lasts a while but isn't quite as sticky.

Looking for sticky. Don't think I'm going to run it a lot. Long lasting is not a concern.

Does it have a manual transmission, or an automatic?

If it's a stick, you might even consider slicks.

Also, lower control arms like these:

And shocks like these:

^^really help to plant that horsepower.
