Can't go wrong with M/T et street radials I have them for my stang and they get plenty sticky!...they claim fastest street radials in the world!..
Only thing I can say is they are taller (17x9 are 275/40's) then regular street tires so your speedometer wont read correctly but thats why the track measures it for you..they also have low-profile sizes but im looking in my summit catalog and I dont see any for 17x9's...oh and they're about $200 a pop..$213.95 to be exact.that quote is from the current summit catalog maybe lrs or am has them if that what you prefer the only thing I saw in my lrs catalog were wheel and tire combos so lrs has the M/T's!..

I second that recommendation.
Most of my research singles them out as being the best.

At your power level I think a Nitto would do you just fine. Generally cheaper and also run narrow.

+1 That is a good point to keep in mind!...no need to spend extra $$ if it wont do you any good..I only recommended M/T's because they're the only slick/drag radial's I have any experience with..

The nitto 555r or the newer nitto nto5. Personally I have the 555r and they're great. You might need to heat them up a little more than the m/t street radials. But the nitto is better than the m/t when it comes to sidewall strength which equals to better handling on turns. It's on you to decide if you want them for straight line or turns. I prefer road racing.

I would get the m/t streets I have used them and they are great both in the street and strip, the nitto 555r is a real good tire last longer than the m/ts but not as sticky. I didnt really like the nt05rs, I would take the m/ts over the nt05r any day.
