Slicks

I'm going to pick up two 15x10 drag wheels today and I need to know what size slick is optimal and will fit within the fender of an sn95 car. Thanks

What is your motor setup and what,gears?
Should either be 26x11.5 or 28x11.5 depending on power and gearing.

4.10 gears and basically a bolt on car. I'm still not sure on whether to get slicks or radials. The slicks would strictly only be used at the track but the radials can be used on the street but are more expensive. I'd like to stay around $200 a tire really.

The slicks with the two "tread lines" going around them. Those are street legal, but essentially slicks.

Thanks for the suggestion. In the end, it seems the MT ET streets are what I'm going with. The only question now is 275/50 or 275/60? It's on a 15' wheel btw.

How tall of a tire are you wanting to run?

I'm not sure. That's why I'm asking. I don't think a 28" tire is going to clear the fender on a car lowered 1.8" an i dont have adjustable LCAs. Btw a 275/50 is 26" and a 275/60 is 28".
