Default Q: Street tires for my '87 Saleen?

I am looking for a set of street tires for my 1987 Ford Mustang Saleen. Is anyone here familiar with Mickey Thompson Tires' Sportsman S/T? A friend recommended it to me. Any other suggestions?

those dont come in 16", nor does any other MT tire so unless you have something other than original Saleen rims ... Plus, the S/T are kinda bulky looking. At the beginning of summer I put on BFG, G-Force Comp 2. 245/50/16 rear and 225/50/16 front. Price was sure better than I expected. Pretty nice tire in the summer but car is garaged in winter so no idea how they handle in the rain/cold. Your going to have a tough time finding the right tire options for 16" wheels. All makers are focused on 17" and up.
Price of speed radials has really dropped over the years. 20 yrs ago I put a set of Firehawks (ZR1?) on and loved them! They handled great all year round in NW rain. The Firehawk Indy is the comparable tire and you can't get them in 16s.
