Sportsman pro tires?

I have a 4 speed car that i drive daily in the warmer months and wanted some opinions on these tires. I was leaning toward the Bias Ply ET Street tires, but being a daily driver i figured they wouldn't last very long on the street. Last year i used the ET Street Radials although they didn't work very well with my 4 speed. So anyone using the Sportsman Pro tires have an opinion on them? or any other tire that might work for my setup? Thanks.

I have used Hoosier Quick Times. Work ok on the street and pulled front wheels off the ground on the track (ran low 10's).

I run M/T Sportsman Pro DOT treaded 31 x 18.5's (with tubes) on the street and track, low pressure, anchored rims. Running an Extreme Automatics spragless 400 with a Griner brake it hits very hard and the tires will hold it most of the time.
