whats the tire with best traction?

Hi Guys,

I have a full bolt on 335i conv, but not LSD, im trying get the best tires for traction... After some research i wanted Michelin super sport, but my friend says continental sport contact is better ??

What do you guys think ? my friend drives awd cars so im not sure i should listen to him..

p.s. price doesnt matter,

Regards,
Dan

Everything I've read says PSS is the ultimate in a DD-capable tire (things like the Pilot Sport Cup and Falken Azeni might have more grip, but are really only street legal so you don't have to change them at the track). So that's what I'm getting put on next week.
