Don't know what part of the country you live in but.........What was the ambient temperature outside when you went for a drive? The Yoko's I had were very greasy with temp's below 55* F.
You could soften the front suspension and stiffen the rear to get more weight transfer, but handling will suffer. Do you have Sport Bilsteins up front or HD's?
355's should be sufficient for a 500+ HP car. 600HP is another matter all together.....welcome to the Monster World!
