Yea, it's called better proper tires like some good, sticky tires. You shouldn't have problems with the size tires you have but you need to have the proper tires. I'm sure you could hook with 255 sized tires that were sticky. So something like Nitto's, Potenza S-04 Pole Position, Z1 Star Specs....just to name a few.
But with the temps being in the 50s doesn't really help out much neither.
