    The last two issues of Sport Compact Car have had a good write up on "street tires." Granted they are more pricey R compound tires, but they have featured tires such as the BFG drag radials and what not. You really should look into what your budget it, and how often you can afford to replace a set of tires. Right now I am running Kumho MX's, they are a great street/auto-x tire, I highly do not recomend for drag racing. A lot of people here run Azenis, again not a good drag tire, but a good street tire, both of them are afordable and easy to replace.

    I would look into some BFG Drag Radials if you are going to be doing drag racing. They are considered to be a very good street drag tire.
