Stickiest non drag radial tire?

I'm wanting to put a fairly sticky street type tire on my car. It's not my daily driver but still mainly street driven. I will have drag radials on a 2nd set of rims but would like something stickier for the main set. Is there even a tire out there that fits what I'm looking for? I'm wanting a 305 or 315/35-20 size tire.

Toyo R888Rs... Dot approved...

Great dry weather tire gotta be careful when wet...

For a decent dw tire nitto nt555 g2s are budget priced...

I had the g2's and now have the Firestone indy 500's. I really like these.

I've heard the Toyos are pretty sticky but how do the G2's and Indy 500 compare?

Thanks guys. I decided to go with the Nitto NT05 in a 315/35-20. I read the reviews and they seem to hook pretty good and still handle well plus i found them online for $260 a tire!
