With street tires (PZero 235s) absolutely NO traction in 1st - 3rd. Which tire for my setup at the Track, strictly track use only. Thanks
I would also recommend going with the 275/60/15. Bigger isn't always better when it comes to drag racing. The objective is to get the lightest tire possible that allows you to hook up. You'll be in great shape with a 275/60. I run that same tire on my 2011 GT and this will allow you to trap at the very top of 4th gear with the 3.73's. If you have to shift into 5th, you'll be loosing some time.

Besides the tire, you may want to look into some suspension mods. Upper & Lower Control Arms and a set of Lowering Springs is definitely a good first step!

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future.
