Tire shopping...... need advise

I have a set of HRE 560R's on order. 18"x9" front and 18"x11" rear.
What tire size, brand, and type are you all using?

I really like my Toyo's on 17's and 16's. I use their TR1's and their RA1's.
RA1's are for DE's and wear quickly but stick well. TR1's are street tires and so far so good with these.

My Heart is with Michelins, but my pocket now likes Toyo's!

I'm running Pirelli 315-30-18's on 11" rears and 245-35-18's on 9" fronts.

Got a smoking deal on the rears on eBay is the only reason I'm using Pirelli. Otherwise, it would be Brand X, as I wasn't looking for ultimate performance. That what my slicks are for.
