Felow CTS-V owner here. I guess it depends what your class allows. Hoosier A6's are always very nice.

If you need to run a street tire:

Cheap: Flaken Azenis RT-615's
More expensive: RE01's, etc.

I run road course, and usually wait until winter and get discontinued Hoosiers. My current slicks cost $75 each, and are basically R6 level compounds. Great deal for HPDE level tracking.

You want better than a racing slick? Perhaps some Kra-z-glu ?

In your area of the world, perhaps you can source some michelin racing slicks?

Keep in mind that you need to get tires that will support the weight of the CTS-V. With that in mind look for tires designed for GT cars, as opposed to LeMans/Daytona Prototypes.

Do you have experience tracking this car or others? You might want to start with a very nice street tire like a PS2, and then go from there. 550whp + Slicks without a lot of experience could be an interesting combination.

I started using R compounds after about 10 weekends of HPDE.

What mods do you have for 550 whp? Also what are you doing about oiling, cooling and safety?

Trukk, you make it sound like there is some sort of science to road racing.

Qatar, listen to the man. I'm not gonna say that he's an expert (because I wouldn't know one way or the other) but, he sure has lots of boring ass videos of him doing a few laps here and there on his youtube account.
