i can only speak for the Toyo R888's Darren. They are by far the best tyre i've tried.
Pros: immense feeling and grip in the dry, and not a stiff wall tyre, they give you confidence. In the wet (on the road) they are fine, probably not so on the track. They warm up within one lap of a track and get hot and sticky. they look really good too.

Cons: 17" tyres are about £150.00 each, they are a soft compound so will wear very quick. I'm guessing here but i bet you get about 6k miles out of them with a handful of tack days included. They are a tyre you get addicted to imho.
