I've heard good things about the Michelins. For the Nitto, probably will pass on that since it is the daily and will be carrying a kid around. I do want to retain some of the comfort as far as every day driving goes.The Firestone Indy 500s are great on my car. If your budget allows the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is an excellent choice. It is the gold standard for a summer street performance tire as far as I am concerned. Stickier options such as the Nitto NT-05 are available at the expense of noise, longevity, and quickness to warm up.
