I'm looking at getting a set of semi-slicks for drag use only, what should i be looking at, and keeping in mind that these will be used on a set of 15" rims for ease and cheapness :lol:

Mickey thompsons arent a bad choice at all and the make a street et radial which u can drive to the tract with and back or go a full slick but bolt emup at the track. Nitto makes one that is pretty good too (street/drag) but are a little hard. I'd go a M/T for the price they are going for

yeah go for the et streets, although i would recommend not driving them to the track, just so they last longer.

Toyo proxie RA-01's are good too, but get the bulk of the tread buffed off first.

nice and soft tread wear about 75 or so I think
