currently tires that i think are great are the michelin pilot sport 4s. it hits the sweet spot for performance, price, and daily driving. of course if your looking not for an all around tire like this one there are way more aggressive tires above this one. if your not familiar with whats available out there, just take a look at these first and use this as a middle reference point to either go higher level or lower level tires as this seems like its a good middle ground.

here is my answer to launch control with this video. i hope it helps out.

... or not! .....probably not.
