Default tire problems

i have a set of the sc style wheels 17 x 8 in the front, and 17 x 10 out back. there black w/ a mirror finish lip. i know what size tires i want to run, i want a 245/45-17 in the front, and either a 275/40 or a 295/40 out back. but i want to know what brand of tire i should use to have a streetable tire but yet have good handling and wet traction.

I'm a big fan of the Nitto 555 tires...also the Nitto DR's hook up real good on the streets if you want to go that route....

Nitto's are a all around decent tire but IMO at the track are marginal
