Proper Tires for Chassis

I am about to purchase tires for my 69 camaro. I have a pair of front 17X7 wheels and 17X9.5s for the rear. Many of you were gracious enough to add to the tires and wheels combos, though many combos did not go into detail of the tire other than it's size was. I'm looking at 235/45 tire up front with 275/40's on the rear. 400 sbc was dyno'd. At flyweel was 526 hp and 519 ft/lbs torque. I'm looking to have identical tire tread patterns, though this has proven somewhat difficult. Any suggestions? The drivetrain is a TCI prepped 700R4 trans with 4.20 gears full spooled in a ford 9". I have another center section that is 3.83's with lock-rites for when I go for a light cruise. Has anybody tried the Nitto NT-01 tire or the michelin pilot sport a/s plus? Reviews are excellent in all areas for both. The michelin tire has a harder compound that is warrantied up to 45,000 miles. This makes me nervous that tires wont grab hard enough during launch. This is a car that will be driven 2-3x monthly on street with seldom play time on the track.
Any suggestions that you wold recommend for tires in a 235/45/17 and 275/40/17 without attempting to not go over $225 ea would be much appreciated
