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…

Forgot to add, this is a base 300a car with the a10 Trans and 3:15 gear.
Put 275/40/18 nitto 555R2 on it or equivalent ET street ss.
The compound is pretty good on the new nitto, my bro just put the 20s on his gt500.. makes 900 ish and works well in warmer temps
That would work on an 8” rim? Anyone got any pics of a 275 on an 8” rim?
Anyone got the nitto 275’s on these wheels? Curious how they look…
