Racing Tires (suggestions) Spinning down the Track

I went to the track for the first time and spun half way on both runs. I'm looking for a solution. What's the best tires to run? I've attached the Video.

Toyo proxes seem to be the tire of choice for a street/drag truck.

yes I launched in 4wd but running those semi tires that are so hard (14Ply tires) is the problem. I ran a 10.9 in the 1/8th and spun over halfway and was doing 92mph by the time I got to the 1/4mile mark.. I think I would have put down some good times if I hadn't spun so much, at least for it being a dually.
I will get it right i just need to spend a little more money

Here are the tires I went with: Super singles by Bridgestone. The truck is lighter and I ha to lift it to make room for the 40" tires and am still tweaking the traction bars bc the axle is rolling a little but when thats fixed I think I'll be able to stick at the track.
