which tires for 1100whp 17X10.5

I'm leaning towards the MT ET Street R, just not sure which one.

The 305/45/17 is 38.11 inches tall.
The 315/50/17 is 29.5 inches tall.

The goal for this car is going to be to roll racing. I'm planning on joining www.raceirra.com until I can get the rear end built up for drag racing and 15 inch conversion.

So for this year, I was leaning toward the taller tire. I think the power will make up for it, and help prevent spinning.

Still on stock 3:45 gear.

Which would you choose and why?

I currently have Racestars in 18x10.5 running MH Racemasters 325/45/18. On the street with air pressure down as low as 16 psi, even after warming them up, I am seeing wheel spin, rpm spikes and a wiggly butt above 5000rpms.

I know a local guy who wants to trade my 18s for his 17x10.5 so my plan was to drop down an inch in wheel size, and go up in tire profile height. Hopefully the additional sidewall will give it more bit.

How will a 29inch tall tire effect the car with the stock gearing? Keep in mind I do not 60' the car, and its only a street car usually run from 40 or 60 mph.

You can see the tires peeling from wheel spin.
