So I am looking to get some new rubber and can't decide what is more important: sticky or durable? I have heard good things about Pilot Powers and the Diablo Corsa's but they are both 75% track 25% road tires, right? Anyone have any suggestions so I can get the best of both worlds???
That is incorrect. These are both street tires with the ability to do just fine in a track environment. The Corsa is the sister tire to the M1 Sportec, but with a deeper tread (hence more life) depth.
You CAN get both sticky and durable. Are you planning on doing any trackdays? Are you using the entire tire area? If not, you should look into something like the Pirelli Diablo Strada. It will give most people more traction than they need, with quite a bit more mileage than the standard Corsa, Pilots, Qualifiers, Sportecs, etc.
There are a lot of very good tires out there to choose from.
