Drag tires for 2014 Shelby

Hey guys,I need some help on choosing some tires for the track. I have Ride Tech lowering coil overs on the car. I can go down to 19 inch wheels but I have forgestar wheels on the back with 315 x 35 on it now. So what do you think would be the best to use. The car has about 706 hp and around 735 torque.
Thanks for your help

I started with mt et streets and with stock shocks on a unprepped track it just smoked all the way, I got some Viking shocks for the rear and made a considerable difference, still first is unusable but at the end of second it starts to hook up.
I have bbr lowers and bmr adjustable upper with mount.
Now I'm about to pull the trigger on QA1 front coilovers to get the front to transfer some weight to the rear, My car is about 50/50 street-drag.
If you go to a good prepped track just see what is working out there, that's what I did and came up with my tire selection, but if you are running a drag radial- suspension plays a big part of hooking up.

I have the BMR suspension in the rear(upper,lower control arms and their Pan hard bar) I went with Ride Tec coil over shocks lower 1-1/2. I have some MT street Radials on AMR 19 x 8.5 inch wheels. I am running Forge Star wheels but not for drag.

For your tire size I've seen nitto 555r (didn't work for crap on my lightning) and the new drag tire from them(nt05r) but haven't seen them at the track yet.
some other people swear by the toyo 888, again, haven't seen them at the track yet.
Since you already have adjustable coil overs and mt et streets I'd just try some simple adjustments, go stiff on the rear compression and simi stiff on rebound, for the front back off the rebound to about 10% and comp. to 70, I've been on a crash coruse on drag suspension for the last 6 months and it's a steep learning curve.note, this is for track only, don't try this on the street.

Thank you for your info. I will contact ride tec and see what settings would be best for their set up
Would that would better on the 19's as far as wheel size
