Default New Track times and some help with tire size

At the start of the year i made a trip to the track ( https://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=2016290 ) and made few passes to see how the new setup was. the passes were made on small set of BFG drag radials at 12PSI 205/50/14(to small for my HP range) this is how it went.

Car weighs in at 2370 with me in it.

60ft 2.1
1/4 12.59
MPH 119.11

I then added a type R lsd

60ft 1.9
1/4 12.08
MPH 119.96

At the end of my latest run i am hitting the rev limiter in 4th gear as i pass the finsih line. Runing a USDM GSR Tranny. I'm wondering what size Tire i should be looking into? They must be 14" or 15" to fit my brakes.

Thanks guys

I wanna try to hit some 11's with a street tire still. I Drive the car on the street 90% of the time and i thought why not try to keep it a full street car and run 11's.

Thanks guys
