Best is subjective.
Personal favorite. Metzler.
Many other good tires out there.
I bought some pirelli's after reading this post and that's all I'll use from now on unless I get a chance to test out some Metzlers. These tires are great and they did exactly what you said. I've put almost 10k on them and they're due for replacement which is much more than I could say for the dunlop stock tires I had that lasted ~7k.
Pirelli and Metzeler are made on the same line theses days
After 1979 Metzeler focused only on motorcycle tyres, and was acquired by Pirelli in 1986.[1]
