Well for a decent street/autox tire I prefer the Falken Azenis Rt-615's. I've also ran a set of the Kumho MX's and the Hankook Ventus RS-2 z212's which were fairly decent.

Be carefull about using wheels intended for drag racing. (not sure if the ones you posted are or not) They may be lightweight... but they usually don't have the strength for the side loads generated by the turns.

Depending on the rim width and what tire you are looking for...
225/50/14
205/55/14
195/55/14
195/6014
185/60/14

The first 3 are usually only available in R compound tires. If you are looking for a "street" legal tire... then the 195/60/14 will most likely be the best option.

Also remember that wheel size can move you around class wise. If you are running in the Stock class... you have to use the OEM size wheel (same diameter, width, and offset +/- .25") If you are in STS then any diameter... but limited to 7.5" wide. STX is limited to 8" wide

the "Drag Wheels" is just the name of the company..... and they are 7" wide...

iam honestly not to worried about what class i get tossed into this season..... iam looking at a Jspec motor swap anyways so iam expecting the worse..... besides iam the kinda guy that likes to go out and tear up the coarse and have fun if i win or loose..... its all fun no matter what to me

i have a set of 14" rims but there isnt a whole lot of aftermarket tires available in that size...... so i opted for the larger rims....

and i know from my understanding if you go 2" larger with rims you get bumped to DSP.... which never bothered me, cus i did really well in that class
