M/T street radial for Drag FD

Hi guys
I would like to run in drag racing with my FD in Street class . Here in Greece i can you only this type of tire .
My intension is to run 20+ psi of boost ( R-85 , Tec3r ...etc ) and i hope to see more than 400hp at the wheels .
With the stock rims and 255/50/16 for rear , its a good set-up for drag racing ?

I would only put them on when racing... don't expect them to last longer than 3K-4K miles. They are very very soft.

They just need a light burnout unlike the Nitto DR's that need to be heated up every run. Don't get caught in the rain with them on the car. Not safe.

3-4K miles? Damn, that would last me 4-5 years

They simply get harder right out of the mold. After a year for best performance it would be wise to replace them. I doubt they will last long for you LUPE .

You're right........ the older they get, the harder they get. I had some Nitto 555R's for 3 years. Plenty of tread left but they wouldn't hook up for ****
