We have used the Bridgestone RE-71R, the R888, and the NT01 on street/track cars. They are all fast and predictable tires. Our experience with the RE-71R is fairly limited, but extensive with the R888, and NT01. Both of them are very durable, and forgiving as a track day tire.  They won't last forever, don't overheat them, and they will treat you well.
