The DOT race tires are eeeevil good. I ran a 2 day school with a miss-matched set (Bridgestone rear, pirelli front) and was/am very pleased with how they worked compared to street tires. The front was REALLY impressive: It's a supercorsa SC2 (medium, I believe?). The bridgestone (Bt-002 soft, in a 55 profile) would move around a little bit, but it was always predictable/stable. Then again, a 10R could make just about any rear tire squirm methinks.
Those tires were awesome; they made the whole experience so much better. Having a front tire that works that well really makes the 10R a blast to heave around. :)
Let us know how it goes. :)
Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
