Which tires to choose?!?!

Hey all!

So with my new tune the stock pirellis are just not doin it anymore! So it's time to change, I love my gtcs wheels but would let them go for the right price....:p haha, but finding a good set of wide tires that will work well seems difficult, I've narrowed it down to two
Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z III Tire (275/40-19) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!
And
Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Anyone try either of these with great success and does anyone have another suggestion? The wheels are 19x8.5 btw

Thanks!

Hankook fan here. Haven't had them on my Mustang yet, but had 2 sets on my last car that were great. Vastly superior wear to dollar ratio!
