Tire selection and size for street/ strip

Hello, I'm still very new to modifying and racing cars. As far as tires go I am completely lost. I'm looking for performance tires that will for sure and hook up to the road to get me my best 0-60mph times and 1/4 times possible..

I want to make sure they are street legal and good for the track. As far as width goes how much wider should I go in the back vs the front? https://drivingpress.com/best-tires-for-ford-f-150/

Do I need to modify my bama tune after the installation? Will I need to make any suspension modifications? Thank you and any suggestions would be very much appreciated..

hi, sorry for slow response, this sub-forum doesn't get much traffic . . . you'll probably get a better response if you post in the "general" section for the generation of Mustang that you are interested in

This is a complex topic and there is a lot involved; some of the basics needed to get a better response:
> what year and model Mustang do you have
> is it currently stock, or if not what modifications have already been done
> what kind of racing are you interested in -- drag racing (straight line only) or road racing (with corners) ?
