Tire time need to get the right one this time

Im running Ford racing K springs and RTR wheels 19x9.5 all around and im looking for proper tires that will look good and hook in atleast 2nd gear *400-410rwhp* , I'm currently running 275/35 in the back and 255/35 upfront, the last thing i need is buying a tire that will rub or not hook. im running some yokohama crap, the car spins from a 60 roll which is scary :dw: so what are ur suggestions?

Why not run a square setup with those RTR's? Since they are the same wheel size all around you could rotate the fronts to the rear when you wear them down, not only achieving optimal life, but better grip and better wear.

My car is in the exact hp range yours is in. When I went racing at the drag n brag event at TMS I ran 255/45/18 nitto 555's at about 24lbs and was hooking up just as good as all of the other mustangs with 275-285's. I do have the 3.31 gears though
