What is the wheel diameter and bead to bead width? There are many options for good tires, sometimes you have to play with the section width and sidewall ratio to find one. Also, define what you think is a sticky tire, you and I may have very different definitions. For a cornering tire that will never be street driven, I like the Hoosier A6/7, R6/7, and R25B. For a street tire, I am partial to the Bridgestone RE-11, Dunlop Direzza Z2 star spec, and have heard great things about the Hankook RS-3 V2 (this was the street tire to have at SCCA Solo Nationals this year). I am hands down the wrong person to talk to about a tire for straight line, any that I listed above are going to have way too stiff of a side wall for good launch characteristics.

Rapinator126 may be able to give you a more informed opinion about straight line tires. Make sure to give him the wheel dimensions.
