are you asking about running it at the track or street? at the track the best tire is M/T Streets bias ply drag tire. if it's the street Nitto DRs or Goodyear DRs if you can stand replacing the $200 tires every 8,000 miles. for wheel hop there also are several things that may be needed to minimize hop. inner and possibly outer rear control arm bushings are a must IMHO. the whole drive line improves if you "derubberize" it. the engine stabilized with (on '04s) an Ingalls stiffy engine torque dampener or otherwise Noltec motor mounts, improved trans mount with the "Windo Weld" mod and of course the drive shaft with one that doesn't have the rubber donuts. some have also had success by replacing ONE half shaft with an aftermarket one of a larger diameter.
