I went with Hankook V12. Read reviews and pick your preference

The Hankook V12 is pretty popular, the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 is just a little more money but a great value when compared to the overall best tire in this Max Performance Summer class the Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

I like the BFG Sport Comp-2. For the price I don't think it can be beat. Performs VERY well on both wet and dry surfaces, good hydroplaning resistance (for a summer tire), and mine were wearing pretty well before I sold them (turned in my car).

I'm sure there are a few better tires out there but I feel the comp-2 offers great value for money, and it performs very solidly overall.

DW has the most wet traction of any tire that i know of. It will blow your mind. I use these to auto-x in the rain.

I've heard the Pilot Supersports are very good in the wet too.

I just installed a set of Nitto Motivos on my 03 SVT. These tires are amazing! Great dry and wet grip!
