What are "street slicks"? MT ET Streets are about as close as you can get and still be legal but they're not cheap. if you have no mods then you can do with BFG or Nitto Drag Radials. None of the tires I've mentioned are "slicks" as all have a minimal tread design but with a soft compound.
And every "go fast" item is costly. Define "cheap"....

i have a set of bfg drag radials on my car, theyre an awsome compound , great tire, awsome traction , they only have about 200 miles on them and are starting to look bald already lol. im against burnouts on my 400 dollar rear tires and theyre still wearing terribly, but its expected even on the streets, go with the nitto 555r's ive heard nothing but good about them.

The MT ET Street radial is basically a cheater slick. Very soft. They are right at 500 bucks with price of mounting. Dont expect them to last long, and more importantly, dont expect your 10 bolt to last the life of the tires
Ive gone away from the MT ET for the street strictly because of the fast wear rates and I didnt like the stabilty at higher speeds.
Im running a Nitto 555R, its a good tire for the street and is more forgiving when you spin on dry pavement. That said, there are hundreds of things you can start doing. I would start reading up on exhuast componets and prices. If I was riding on a stock 10 bolt I wouldnt be going out ans slapping the most stickey tire on it... Personally.
If your an Auto, there is no greater mod then a Stall.370 CI - Twin 6766 Turbo - Jakes stage 5 4L80E - MWC 9" - Holley Dominator
Build in progress...

I run m/t et. streets for the track and when I plan on racing on the street, cost me $500 to get a pair shipped to Alaska.
+1 for the stall

I liked my nittos and you can get a set off jegs really cheap honestly. i got a set of 16s for 297 shipped. They arent super expensive and they hooked on a 3k rpm drop at the track with minimal spin after a few passes. Good tires for sure. They wore really well too. After some burn outs and a good amount of driving they still looked new with minimal tread wear. Oh yeah jegs= free shipping.

if you're looking for a longer lasting drag radial get nitto's.....if you're looking for more traction get Mickey Thompson drag radials. You can get 13k out of a set of Nitto's ( that's what I got out of my last set) and you'll get half that out of the mickey thompson's. The mickeys hook much better though.

the m/ts are awsome, i have the bfgs on my car on 15's and theyre greatttt except the treadwear is crazy
