Nitto NT-05 vs. Dunlop Z1 Star Specs

I'm looking to run 275/35R18 square on street & track. Once I get more track experience, I'll get some dedicated track rubber for these wheels.

From what I can tell, the NT05 should do better on track, while the Star Specs will be a bit more street friendly. Correct? Any other thoughts?

Other options I'm considering (note: Yokohama AD08 and Bridgestone RE11 aren't offered in this size, and I want something more aggressive than Michelin PSS):
  • Hankook R-S3
  • Falken RT-615
  • Kumho Ecsta XS

The RS3 might be best on track, but definitely wears the fastest of all 5 and wet performance isn't great. I've pretty much ruled out the Ecsta XS. I know least about the Falken RT615.
