15inch drag tire question

Hello all quick question. For a car that has around 430-440 at the wheel. What's a good size tire? I'm want to go with a drag radial but I'm not sure of which size and brand to go with. I have 28in tires in the front. This is a car that is driven 2-5 a month and see the track as many times as i can make it.
Thanks

275s on an 8" rim are fine, or you can compensate for lack of suspension setup with wider ones on a 10".

A street tire that I can drag on. I've been learning about drag radials and by ply. I understand that for manual cars by ply is better. But I also want to take the car into work 2-5 a month.

I want to go to 15s for weight and cost of tires.

If your car is a manual you need a slick for a few reasons. First you'll be faster with them and second you won't be breaking things.
