MT ET street, ET St Radial II, or ET St radial pro

In the neighborhood looking for a set of racing tires and wheels only. Probably will only use A couple times per year therefore I will only drive them on the street to and from the track. I've always loved the Weld draglite Rims, but do not know which of These tires will be the best or what size I will need to run. I want to get the welds in the 15x8 or 15x9 size to optimize for weight, but when I go to MT website I'm not sure what size I'll need due to them not being in the conventional sizes (i.e. 275/40/17). I'll be running my stock 245/45/17s up front due to me having the 13 inch cobra brakes, so for now I will hold off on skinnies even though I know they make 17s that clear the brakes. What do you guys think?
Thanks.

What mods does your car have? The size of the tire will depend on ur mods. For most applications, MT ET Streets in a 28x10.5x15 should be sufficient for most people.

Bolt ons for now: long tubes prochamber and flow masters, cold air intake, and 373 gears plus a tune, PA performance k member and a arms, steeda springs, mm cc plates, mm subframe connectors.

Future plans call for trick flow top end kit and cams, and eventually a low boost supercharger.

At your power level the radial will do you just fine. Be careful mixing bias-ply tires and radials on the front as it leads to an interesting ride.

I'm hooking just fine on the et street radial original. 315/45-16 on a 16x7. 12-13lbs and leaving hard.
