Default Need help picking a drag tire

Ok, so the deal is I run at the local track where once a month they have a day where only street legal cars can race. I picked up a set of bogarts to run at the track and can not decide what tire to go with. My car is a cam/nitrous car spraying 110 to the wheels(490hp/520tq) with a yank ss3600 and 373 gears with a race weight of 3540~lbs. I really want to run a drag radial but not sure what one to go with. I spray the whole shot right out of the hole as well. What tire would suit my needs best?

Thanks, Mike

Its a 15x10 d10. I was thinking about 275 in hoosier or maybe 295 in the mt. Id like to keeo the weight as low as possible.

The Mickey radials are much heavier than the Hoosiers and pretty much every other tire.
