Question '15 Roush Needs New Tires

I've got just short of 23,000 miles on my '15 Roush Stage 3 Phase 2 and its going to need new tires fairly soon. The stock Cooper Zeon RS3-S are "OK", but they aren't super sticky and I find they let go really easily in first.

I'm looking for something that will hook up a little better for replacements and am looking for suggestions / experience. The car has the Roush upgraded front wheels, so I'm running 275/35R20s front and rear. The care is my daily driver, but I live in New Mexico, so wet weather performance matters, but secondarily.

Personally, I prefer directional tires, so I was looking at the Nitto NT555G2 on the front and either the same or the NT555R on the rear.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Nittos are OK, many swear by them because they are cheap but my tire of choice is Michelin Pilot Sport, the same tire on Corvette and 350 Shelby's.

Default does some serious tire testing... They can really give you the info you need on tread life, noise, handling, wet handling , snow handling, braking, etc....

What bugs me on shows like Garage Squad is when they take the guys car out and do massive burnouts on the new tires they just gave him for free...
