Sumitomo HTR Z III vs Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

Im trying to make up my mind between Sumitomo HTR Z III vs Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 and was wondering if anyone had experience with both or either of these tires.
Im looking for an inexpensive replacement for my OEM tires as they are getting close to worn out and id like an upgrade in grip for autox/daily driving without ruining the natural characteristics of the car. It appears the 2nd gen v12 evos generally have better grip but have a rather narrow traction limit that makes them more difficult to deal with at that limit. All the comparisons ive been finding between the sumitomo and the hankook are against the 1st gen v12 evo tire which was supposed to be worse off. Tire feel and response are very important to me.
