    215/60 wide, and also alot of sidewall. sidewall allows for flex = increase in traction.

    correct me if i'm wrong guys, i know this is how slicks work.,

    yeah i think you're right. more sidewall=more flex=more traction. that's why when people have trouble hooking, they lower the tire pressure. lets it flex more and hook better

    forgot one quick and important question. what tire pressure, PSI should I inflated these tires? and where should I launch at? on street tires, I launched at 4000rpm. what should I launch at with these new tires?

    your pretty much guinna have to fine tune that for yourself
    id try around 20psi at first and launch where you normally would
    adjust from there
