I bought my slicks lightly used from a member on FJ. They're Mickey Thompson 24.5 x 8 x 15 tube-type drag slicks. I had them on my stock 15" wheels for a while, I'll try to find a pic. I now have them on 15 x 8 5 star drag wheels.

17" wheels are horrible for drag racing. They're too heavy. That's one advantage the Honda definitely has on you is unsprung reciprocating wheel weight. You'd do better to drop down to 15" wheels, even stockers. The less the wheel/tire weight and the more centered the weight to the center of the wheel, the better.
