Default Best street tires for a C5Z

Looking for a street tire for my C5Z. Happy with my track tire choice but need something that is quiet enough to have a conversation with my wife. Not a lot of manufacturers make both a 265/40-17 and a 295/35-18. What have you used and why?

Not many choices in the 265/40-17 front size any more - the two top selection that come to mind that also have the matching 295/35-18 rear tire are Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 or GoodYear Eagle F1 Supercar. Most folks have just gone with the slightly large 275/40-17 front tire and have no issues. With the 275/40-17 front size and 295/35-18 rear, then you go with say a set of Continental Extreme Contact Sport, which should be net you a fairly smooth and quite tire for the street. Remember that the only things more subjective than the sound of an exhaust and the firmest of the shocks are the ride and handling of the tires, so as always YMMV.
