SS 1le drag/street tires

Anyone have an alternative street tire that has better straight line linear traction than the oem Goodyear eagle f1 supercar 3s in an SS 1le? Have a set of oem's for twisties and lateral traction but don't want to ruin them with burnouts and straight line hooning.

Saw threads comparing the standard ss run flats to other options but none with the sc3s.

Should an m6 be running a drag radial? I've always steered clear in an m6 car.

I believe this is for street use. So yeah, either the 555R or MT ET street SS. The MT ET Street R is definitely more of a track tire and they also don't make it in a 20".

The et street r radial doesn’t have steel belts so it will flex when aired down. It feels great aired up on the highway. For street strip stick use I wouldn’t get any other tire.

The Goodyear have been good, simply asking to see if there's anything clearly better for the money because I'm getting new tires this week before racing this weekend. Looks like I'll probably be sticking to the sc3's.
