If you are talking mickey thompson street radials then yes you do
If you are talking all weather normal tires that you can purchase at sears then I gotta say your chances are very slim. The 60' on regular street tires tends to be north of 2.0 in most cases.
But in the end there is only one way to find out for sure. Do your best to feather a 1.9 60' and see what that gets you for an ET. And I agree with keeping more gas in your car if you are traction challenged. I found that I would 60' a lot better on 1/2 tank then I did at 1/4 or less. Sometimes the extra weight in the back helps.
