Best street/track tire for big HP 930s?

I was just wondering which track tires the 930 people favor for street/track use in a DOT legal spec? My car is currently on Michelin Pilot Sport Cups, 265/35/18 front and 345/30/18 rear. Good all around tire but I'm wondering if anyone has tried anything else that works better?

PS2's are great and have heard complaints from those who move onto a different tire. However i'm moving to Pirelli 355/25/19 for a more predictable rear end though they have slightly less grip and Eagle F1 G3 D3 315/35/17's up front for the real bite.

What kind of body work are you running to fit those 345's?

Hi Reaper,

The PS2s and Eagle F1s are pure street tires I believe. The bodywork is 993 GT2 Evo and the wheels are BBS Racing magnesium center.

315s on the front? Are you installing power steering?

Yeah these make for good track tires if you're not ready for R compounds (like me).

I'll second the BFG TA KD's, but I understand they're getting hard to find, i.e. discontinued.
