Radials are harsher on the car with a stick. If purely for racing, ET Drag or Hoosier slick. 28x10.5. I ran this size on a 15x8, but majority will say to use a 15x10 for better contact

I'd say Hoosier 275/60 drag radial these sidewalls feel so thin and the tire wrinkles not your typical drag radial and more stable than a bias

^^^^ I run the Hoosier 26x8.5x15 stiffwall slick. It's actually a 9" tread so I don't know why they call it out as 8.5. As mentioned above, I run it on a 10" wheel for best contact patch. If you need a DOT tire I would seriously consider the Hooseir Quick Time Pro which is essentially their slick with some grooves in it to pass DOT. It's still a bias wrinkle wall.

Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.
