Track tire on street recommendation?

So, from spring to fall, I'm looking for a tire that can give some pretty solid traction and I realized at this point I need some type of track tire for the level of grip that I'm seeking. Would any of you give me your recommendation on a tire? Thanks in advance

Bridgestone RE71R is a grippy trackable street tire. Aside from them being noisy I love them for curves.

Another vote for the rs4's. Long life and reasonable grip on track.

I’m running re71r’s now. Seems the closest alternative since they are no longer producing them, is the Falken rt660’s. I suggest checking them out. Good reviews so far.

Hankook RS4 guys, what sizes are you running? Just saw these and they look interesting, priced right also. I'll need 305/19 to replace R888r's.
