Depends on how you ride, where you ride, and how long you want your tires to last

How do you ride?
Aggressive, commuting, cruising?
What's more important, traction or mileage?

I was focused on performance and not so much mileage so I was stuck between the S20 and pilot power 3's . I went with the PP 3's and have no regrets

Don't forget the special friction modifying additive.

Round (mostly) and black; although it could be construed as racist by some.

Often overlooked, the Pirelli Angel GT is a good tire. It's still in the sport tire category and offers higher mileage than the other sport tires (S20,Q3,PP3). It too has Multi-Compound Technology like the others. Pirelli calls it EMS, "Extended Mileage Sport".

If you want performance just get a set of Shinko hook ups. Those will keep you planted from 0 to 200
