    Welcome and I know of no stock tire that will hold this beast in straight line, you need drag radials

    325 is way to big, 305 seems to fit great

    If you want Traction go with a drag radial, Most are using Nitto, Or Micky Thompson

    Lots of discussion on this in the tires section. As I learned.. 305s will not maintain the stock height of the front 275/40 factory wheels. If you get 305/35s your back wheel will be slightly less than a 1/2" shorter than the front. It will cause the speedo to be off a bit and depending on how keen an eye you have, will look shorter than the front.

    The only wheel that maintains the proper height is a 315/35 but you will have to get different rims to run them.
