Daily street tires?

Hello guys,

Sorry if this doesnít belong here. Couldnít find where else to put it? So I had to get my two rear tires plugged due to a nail in each.
Iíve just purchased a drag set for the rear to use at the track. I also donít wanna spend another $650 on tires for the rear. But I do want to drive my car spirited here and there, because Ö thatís why I got it lol

My question is, are there any pair of rear tires that are relatively cheap that have ok traction, I can use as dailyís to drive spirited here and there?

I have had a few nails in tires this year and really sick of buying tires. nt555g2s are ok for daily, readily available at a lot of places and cheap compared to other options. grip in the snow is non existent, if that matters you probably have the wrong car to start with though... or should have something for winter.

I carry a mini pump with me and patch kit so i dont have to use run flats, but it is not advised to drive high speeds with a patch so if you get a hole still a good idea to replace. Tire blowouts can be very expensive if tire blows out at high speeds.

The Nitto 555R2 are great for street and track use.
