Need new drag radials. Best Nitto

I have been running Nitto NT555R 275 40 17 on my Camaro for about a decade. I have only put 1,000 miles or less each year on the car. Only drive on warm dry days. These tires are almost done. I want great traction all the time and these did just fine. Is there a better option from Nitto or do I need to switch companies or stay with NT555R. Price doesn't really factor in, if I can hook up almost anytime I floor it. Would love an aggressive tread design that makes the car look great when you see it parked. The NT555 look sort of plain, like a normal radial, and I wonder what offers performance with a new cool look. (Supercharged 400HP) Thanks

I'm considering buying Toyo Proxes R888. I've read that they perform well and have a pretty aggressive look. They're a D.O.T. competition tire.

I see the R888 but not the R888R available in the 275 40 17. I definitely want the latter for more traction. I like the tread design of both.
