Best drag tires for stock 18x8 rim

Hello folks,
Been doing quite a bit of searching and have not found a viable drag strip option for sticky tires for my 18x8 stock 2021 GT rims. Whatever I do find, the diameter is much smaller and I think will throw the speedometer off.
Anyone know of any 27.3” diameter + or - a half inch, sticky tires that would fit on a 18x8 rim? Not looking to change rims, etc… this is going on a daily and want to just drive to the strip and let it rip everyone once in a while and actually cut a half respectable 60ft time. I would like to actually turn traction control off to get the full benefit of power to the ground. On the current pirelli 235 all seasons it just spins.

also have seen some half decent reviews on the Firestone Indy tires but still am skeptical…

I know there are many more options if I step up to a wider rim, just seeing if there’s something I’m missing…

there's a reason why tire manufacturers publish tire spec charts, and i'm sure one might be able to find some ignorant tire installer who can probably manage to fit a 305 tire on a 7" rim, but maybe, just maybe, there's a reason why once again tire manufacturers publish tire spec charts... just a thought as this seems to be a very hard concept to grasp for many.
