Looking for a recommendation on tire / size. Car currently has a set of MT Sportsman S/R. 29/15-15. But its going to just be a bracket car. Motor = 500hp , weight = 3200lbs with a 4.88 rear gear set. recommendations on tire size?

With pretty much the same combo, except at 3100lbs with 4.57 rear gear, have had good success with Hoosier 30x9R-15 CO6 radial slick [18209]. With their recommended "short" burnout we get 200-250 passes over 2 seasons.
