Default Opinions on performance tires?

Thats right its about that time to get new tires on my 05 GT. I live in florida so I dont need to worry about snow or ice. I currently have all season performance tires. I am looking at buying high performance summer tires. Any suggestions?

There may be better task oriented tires, but for all around good performance, grip, feel, ride ... I still like Goodyear RS-A s.

Nitto NT555's. I have an 05 GT and live in florida as well and I love these tires. I got them about a month and a half ago and have already put on a couple thousand miles on them and have not noticed any wear. They perform great in dry conditions and have a pretty good amount of grip, and they are decent in really wet conditions. Last night I got caught in a really bad rain storm on my way home from work and I couldn't get them to break traction so to me thats pretty good.
