Drag racing tires

I am just wondering if anyone here knows if Mickey Thompson Tires' Sportsman Pro Tires is an ideal drag racing tires for vintage cars like 1965 Ford Falcon Sedan?

What size wheels do 1965 Falcons have? My 1963 has 13-inch wheels. 13-inch tires probably would not work too well for drag racing.

The brand of tires that I hear most people liking are the MT's. While in Tucson I raced my 64 just to see what it would do on street tires. I asked quite a few guys about slicks.
Again, most including my brother run the MT's but there were those who loved the Hoosiers. A couple of guys recommended street radials. I am looking for some MT's to buy this year and run my car again with the slicks. Not sure this helped. Larry
