Best high horsepower "Street" tire?

I had a thread asking about the best street/strip tire and the New M/T "R" drag radial was said to be good but it seemed like the Hoosier quick-Time Pro was considered a little better and really hooked at the track, but didn't handle as well as the DR on the street. I got thinking that maybe I should ask my question in a different way. Our 363 mustang will be driven 95% on the street and I figured that maybe if we are going to take it to the track to see what it is capable of we should probably get a extra set of rims and put slicks on them. So, I guess I should really be asking what tire will hook the best on the street pavement. Does the QTP still have the edge on the street as well as the track or is it's main purpose for a nice prepared track? If the QTP is still king, maybe we could just use them at the track too, but that is why I wanted to see what you guys liked best for street use with a good amount of power. Our 363 is not a daily driver and is a stick car too. We've been using the older M/T drag radials (255-60-15 27.5") and they have worked well, but that is with a 320rwhp 5.0. The 363 is coming . Street Warriors let me know what you like if you do some street driving

The QTP is about as gripy as it gets on the street. There is all so the ET street bias,not many sizes available.

Do you need to run tubes with these?

XSpower, combo in sig. I run 255/60/15 et street r on one set of wheels and QTP 27/11.50 on another set. The QTP def works better but they wont last. Just driving around with the DR's cold (no burnout), they spin all over the place. Car is 2590lbs with 500+whp so yea. Do a big smokey and they work much better but if im gonna make some hits ill throw on the QTPs.
