Best tires to buy?

Okay so I'm shopping around for some tires for my new rims

I want good street tires that can also be used for the track from time to time but mainly street use I want some good handling and long lasting tires.

These are what I'm currently looking into from what my friends recommended and I'm looking to spend 600 max

Toyo Proxes T1R 295
Potenzas RE-760
Nitto's 555

How do the handle on day to day driving? And how do they hook?

The Nittos dont hold up like they used to. had a set of the old 450s on my Beretta GTZ....still looked new after 50k miles

Long lasting and grip- michelin defender series. I know its a passenger car tire but wow, the ride is smooth, they can take a turn with ease and tey don't spin a lot like my bf Goodrich radial T/A did. Oh and they last for a supposed 90,000 miles. Also tread water and heat well. I'm at 5,000 miles on then now and love em
