    with a stock rear and too much power, i would worry about any tire that is too sticky.
    i have 16 inch rims also.
    the nittos are a good tire, but dont hook the best once you get past 350 rwhp.
    they still do hook rather well, just not like a slick.
    with a set of slicks, i would see 11s.

    I'm in the 11's with BFG DR's but I do have major traction problems. I've heard good things about the MT DR's so I'm looking into those next

    They will increase the HP/TQ across the RPM Range about 10-22 HP depending on your application. They will also made your engine rev faster, so despite the small gain you will get the power faster. You can also tow around with higher ratios and get more lift, but it's generally frowned upon because you can get more lift ground into a cam and you're only moving the power up the rpm band
