So, until you find the limit of your current tires, I wouldn't be messing around with slicks. Especially if doing trackdays with the possibility of rain. You're going to eat tires on a liter bike and tires are by far the biggest expensive in the budget. Good sport street tires will serve you just fine as will DOTs. Slicks and some DOTs prefer tire warmers as well. If you start running slicks, then you're in for more money than just the cost of tires.
I recently did 2 days at VIR in the fast intermediate group. My brother was there with me. Both on our Gen 4 ZX-10s, I was on GPAs and he was on Q3s. We were neck and neck about the same speed, with him being slightly faster. Neither of us were near the limit of the tires. His were $250/set while mine were $300+.
Until you can reach the limit of your current tires, best stick with the cheapest ones going.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
