Let's talk tires

So it is time for me to buy some new tires for my race Stars and figured I would ask and see what everybody else is running and what seems to be working the best for our trucks I'm looking at maybe going with Mickey Thompson Pro's or Hoosier co7 for tire size I am thinking 29.5 10.5 r15
