yeah the 555R's. They'll typically last me around 10-12K miles racing occasionally.
I usually run them at 35 unless im racing then they're at 19psi.
As far as traction and temp goes. What exactly did you need to know?

Under 555, they have a both a street tire and a drag radial.

555
treadwear:300
traction: A
temp: A

555R (drag radial)
treadwear:100
traction: A
temp: A

The 555R is primarily for drag use, would provide better traction, but and would be fairly dangerous in rain and snow. Not that you or I worry about snow, but they will wear fast on the street. I got 35k out of BFG radial T/As with about 95% street 5% strip use. i will probably use the 555.

If you want traction you better air those puppies down to about 13 PSI! Go get those slips.

I've found that they best work for me at around 18 psi.
