For daily driving, the brands are usually Pirelli, Goodyear F1s, or Nitto.

Don't have to much exp with what is good cause I'm still in my coopers but what kev says seems to pop up all the time. Personally I'm gonna look into Mickey thompsons. My issue is more hooking up as I have a **** load of power so i know just tires not gonna fix the prob.

My Goodyear F1's are a dry/warm weather tire only...are not as good in the rain as the Pirelli's that came on my 14 TrakPak. For my money Michelin's are the next tire for me.

The best tires I've had so far were Michelin Pilot Super Sports.

When/if these Mickey Thompsons wear out I'm going back to PSS's.

I also have the factory coopers on my RS3, I think cooper owns Mickey Thompson.....they might be the exact same tires. I don't think the tire is really our problem with hooking etc. I lose traction and almost go sideways in 3rd gear, and I have plenty of suspension upgrades. Our wheels are 20's, 9.5 inch wide....I think the answer might be buying wider wheels so we can get more rubber to the road. If you ever solve your traction issue, let me know. i like the Roush wheels and don't want to lose the look in order to hook. Eventually I might buy Vossen CV3 as they look similar to what we have, and they fit a larger tire. Unfortunately I can't afford the anytime soon....Good luck man, as you said....too much power for the road pretty much

I love vossen, I also like my Roush wheels but I think I am going to try the Nitto NT05's on the rear to get a better hook up.

These threads that ask for the "best" of anything are always so subjective.

Okay you want street tires. Also a million of those.

As someone mentioned, do you drive in the rain? Snow? What climate do you live in?

Regardless I will say avoid Pirellis & sumis. They suck.

I can't tell you what's best because that really depends on how you drive where you drive when you drive.

I recently went with continental extreme contact DW (dry wet). I purchased these because I will be driving in California where it's never really cold and hardly rains.

They were given 4.5 stars with over 1000 reviews on tire rack. They are quiet, yet they perform amazing.

Size was also a factor. Based on the sizes I wanted to run there is only about 20 different brands/styles (at least on tire rack). I am running 255 40 on the front (stock size on a brembo car) and 285 35 on the rear on 19x10" rear wheels.

For the price I felt this was the best option for me. I love them.

Are they the "best" tire? I can't tell you that. But are they perfect for me and would I recommend them? Absolutely

Well said. And the Contis you have are easily the best "all season" tire for the money. Hell, maybe just in general.

Nittos 555/555R are overpriced as hell and not as good as some other brands that cost less. They also run crazy narrow so your 315 555R (example) is more like a 275 or 285. When I went from a 315 wide 555R to a 275 wide BFG the BFG was damn near as wide as the Nitto.

Now if we are talking about the NT05 then that's a whole other ballgame but those are for ppl who are ok with getting new tires every few thousand miles...

The street tire for you depends on driving conditions and the best tire is subjective. Continental extreme contact are good tires for daily driving. I would also look at Michelin pilot super sports (what I'm considering next). Take some time to consider what conditions you plan on driving in and then narrow down your selection based on that. Tire rack is a good resource.
