Stickier tires for traction
Lower Control Arms to eliminate wheel hop
Deeper gears for quicker acceleration
Good tune (After having 5 Bama tunes then trying MPT, I recommend MPT)

Either way, focus on getting your existing power to the pavement first. Won't do you much good to add go-fast goodies if your tires are slipping.

How did I forget lower control arms!! Those definitely go with the wheels and tires, and for 100 bucks, completely eliminated my wheel hop once I got the new tires!! Very good early mod. I did mine after the shorty headers. So I actually went... Tune(Bama 93H), exhaust(FRPP sports axle back sound only), shorty headers(BBK), rear lower control arms(J&M), Air raid CAI(for sound), And then TSW Nurburgring 19x8.5" wheels and Sumitomo HTRZ III summer tires... Next up is either 3.73 gears(kind of like my 3.31 though), lowering/full suspension, or save up for a Turbo or supercharger. Can decide if I want to stay N/A good or not !

Sticky tires are one of the best things you can do for a car.

For sure, tire & suspension upgrades are hugely beneficial!
