You really can't have both. If it hooks well it won't last long. If it lasts a long time chances are it's not going to hook.

555 will last longer then a true drag radial but won't hook as well as one either. Warm them up and they will definitely hook better then a normal Street tire.

I have heard the Michelin pilot sports are the best all around street tire, traction wise. I haven't tried them myself but the recommendation came from multiple cts-v owners.
