Ultra High Performance SUMMER or PSS AS 3

High guys, I'm doing some research on New tires for my Stang. Thinking of a Michelin PSS 3, GY F1 Super Car or any other. My size is 305-35-20 all around. Since my Cooper Zeon RS3s suck I have to replace them asap. I would appreciate your guys opinions on this matter.

If you don't drive your car in the winter, get the highest performing summer tire you can afford.
Pay attention though, to the tread wear rating, as some of the really sticky tires I've seen have a 150 rating. That would mean you might lay out $1,600 for a set of tires that would last a maximum of 15,000 miles -- and probably a lot less.
The other rating that I personally pay attention to when buying tires is the noise rating --- and this is a lot harder to come up with as almost every tire shop sales person will tell you. -- "oh yes, this is a quiet tire." I will sacrifice a bit of lateral G rating for a quieter tire as our roads here are horrible, and our concrete highways even worse for NOISE!

Most sticky tires do come with a fair bit of road noise. Like Guard mentioned though, you gotta weigh the cost vs performance.

Answer us a few questions:
How wide are your rims
How many miles do you drive
How long do you expect tires to last
How much horsepower are you making

On my last turbo 4 cylinder i was putting 300 treadwear tires on there because i still drove 22-25k miles a year. The car was big turbo making 500 whp though, and i would still chew through those tires in 15-20k miles so i figured i may as well suck it up and put something sticky on there anyways.

Roads in Omaha suck, with the Cortex Racing suspension I have on it is a lot busier and noisier and with the 305's it tends to wonder on bad roads so a little noise will not bother me much, I just want them to stick to the pavement. The wheels are 10 inch wide all around and the car should be plus or minus 500hp. I shall be taking it to the dyno pretty soon. I don't want to spend 1800 bucks and get 10000 miles because I drive around 12k a year plus track time translate to 3600 bucks a year, not too practical for me, I can do 1800 a year including track time.

For the above said I assume they would need to last me around 25k in a year

It's not whp, is just my calculation. 420 original + 10 fo the 3 inch Borla racing exhaust + 70 for the Cobra Jet intake manifold and throttle body and CAI and tune, that probably translates to around 500 or 440 whp
