I have been very pleased with my RE-11s, reasonably grippy for a five year old tire design, and I just ticked over 40,000 miles on them. They do need to get some heat in before they get really grippy, but by the third lap or so, they are good.
That said, the unbeatable street tire for the 2015 season has been their new RE-71R. This tire is basically an R comp with tread. The grip is spectacular, and they love to be driven at the elusive 11/10, unlike many street tires (they accept slip angle readily, where most street tires flat out say no). These have so much grip that the street tire guys are being forced to rethink their setups because they are all lifting tires off the ground (nothing like two wheeling an S2000 at 85 through a slalom). Be warned, these do wear at a higher rate than even my r comps.
