I have used quite a variety of tires over the years. Michelins hold up the best. The rear tire performs great. The front tire is light and corners fairly well. The front tire doesn't grip as well in a hard leaned over corner, but you would really have to be railing it. the rear tire grips great but is a little on the heavy side. I would recommend these and Bridgestones. You have to try both and see what works for you. The best combination I found is a Michelin in the rear and a bridgestone on the front.
