Need help selecting tires

Hi everyone.

I'm in need of some new tires. What are some great street/summer tires for a supercharged mustang with 360rwhp.
I want to get the best traction possible

I use nitto T555. Great for summer and rain. Works well in heavy downpour weather. Bout $250 per 285/30/18 and $ $200 for 17s. Road hazard warranty is a must have with these babies. Uni directional tires. Google nitto home page for more details. The are drag ready. High road temps make them stick better, cold road temps is opposite.

Im running Hankook Vents RS3s and they hook pretty damn good. I went from chirping third to just barely chirping second. I've got a buddy laying down 500rwhp on a turbo 240SX with the same tires.

If you have at least 275 rear and are looking for a good dd/ spirited tire with decent off the line traction check out the bfg g-force sport compound 2. There gonna b my next set for sure.
