Quietest tires for sliding

I'm looking for tires that do not make too much noise as they break traction with equal or less grip than OEM PS2 to put on one of my extra sets of wheels.

I have the Pilot Super Sports, and they're actually pretty quiet when they slide or spin, but they have a lot more grip than OEM PS2's. They also cause the car to exihbit more body roll due to the additional grip, and they only break traction at higher speed and with more throttle. So, this rules out R-compound rubber which doesn't make much noise when it slips.

Performance all seasons or non-max performance summer tires are all ok long as they are relatively quiet as they break traction. Good steering response and road manners are a plus.
