The 595RS-RR are legit tires, but sizes are very limited (max size is 275/35/19). They are very loud for regular driving, but dry grip is superb once they're warmed up.

Look into Michelin PS4S or Bridgestone S007A instead.
Definitely leaning toward the RS-RR's. After the clutch/flywheel I'm going to re-flash for e85 and at that point I'll be in the same range as you (upper 500's). Already going to be dealing with some chatter from the SMFW, might as well get used to tire noise too. The sacrifices we must make for this kind of power I suppose
