Default Best 275/40/17 non-drag radial tire

What is the best 275/40/17 non-drag radial minimum 200 tread wear tire available? This is for straight line traction in a “street tire” class. Also what type of burnout on this style of tire works best?

Mickey Thompson sport comps are pretty good at hooking for a true street tire.

I'm VERY happy with my Nitto NT05 tires in 275/40/17 on all 4 corners! They're especially awesome in the summer, but aren't as grippy in cold weather. They also have the additional benefit of having a matching NT05R if you want to swap on a matching drag radial for a trip to the track.

nitto nto5 all the way, no doubt. Nitto 555 g2 would be step down as far as performance, but safer in rain.
