Default Top tyres for the road and the track

My mates and I have been going to the track (Wakefield in Australia) for a few years now and the best tyre we have come across are surprisingly not the most expensive.

1. Khumo KU36 XS
2. Federal 595 RS-R
3. Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec
4. Yokohama AD08

They are road legal AND they produce the best lap times of all street tyres on a miriad of cars. Nissan Skyline, Nissan Silvia (S15), Mazda MX5 SE, Nissan 300ZX,

Just wondering, cuz you two seem pretty sure about yourselves.

I've got the KU36's and I'm doing better times than skylines using R-comp's (with better power to weight ratios)
