Kumho V700 Victoracers, or the new Nitto N555R competition tire (not the drag radial) Both are very good competition tires. The Nittos are similar to the Yokos in that you can drive them on the street without doing damage to them (in terms of heating) The Kumhos you should leave as dedicated tires and mount when needed.

ded hot lapping you do at a DE. Road racing R-compound tires have more grip and are less durable but are still durable enough to go the

whole way. Autocross spec R-compound tires are designed to heat up after a few turns - they wouldn't last multiple laps on a road course.

I'm sure others here can add more. I run street tires all around.
