I spent a little time checking out cheater slicks too, but...

Really expensive
They're recaps
I don't plan to make enough power to warrant the hassle

I went with the Radirs myself but man were they expensive. I had the money for 6 months before I could bring myself to pull the trigger.

Does anyone remember 'Bruce's Slicks?' I buddy and I shared a pair on 8" Corvette wheels. He had a '56 Chevy and my Ford coupe sported a Buick with a Chevy drive train.
This would have been in the late sixties....

That and I want to be able to drive in the rain if necessary. After watching Finnegan drive his 55 on slicks in the rain, no thanks. It rains way too much here in Tampa for that mess

Decided on Yokohamas. The shop next door that's worked on my F250 couldn't get anything but Kumhos. No thanks. Tire Kingdom wanted over $800 for the whole thing. So I ordered them from Tire Rack on Saturday ($490 shipped) and they were here this morning. Shop next door installed them, but no balance. I'm gonna try Dyna Beads.
