15 or 17 x10 rears for drag?? And tire question...

OK, I am really where I want to be performance wise. I have 20's for the street and they arent the best for traction but look great. I want some rears for the track days (drag). I have already done the sway relocation brackets so I know I can go 15's. Do I want to I assume they are better than 17 but I want to hear from those who are running more regularly. Either way I will drive to the strip on my daily's and then swap. I am also thinking drag radials as opposed to straight slicks but I assume slicks will be better if I am only using at the track?

Input appreciated.

15x10's is all I ran. Because you have a manual transmission a slick is what you need. Here is what my car looked like with 15x10's.

awesome look! So 15x10 slicks not drag radials. I was reading about the differences and advantages for manual for bias ply and that makes sense. One thing I am curious about, if I am only switching out for the strip do I still need fronts or will my dailys be ok. I only ask because obviously my daily are radials and the rears would be biass ply

A bias ply for the front would net better gains but isn't absolutely necessary. What you will get is some swaying/floating type feeling at the top of the track though. It may be a bit unnerving for you but you'll have to see.
