Its too hard to answer from one person. At least if you hope one person can give a true best tire and they cant, they will be biased just like everyone else. Including me...but I find im the rare breed that goes out and actually does a lot of tests. The poll idea can get you close. But ive seen large groups of people swayed by a certain product and I test it and find it useless. (just an example)
It really comes down to you what you think and drives best for you and your area. As you say your used to racing on rubber in your area. Well your new area will have new local racers and they are a good gauge of what to use....and either way if they are wrong. They are all wrong and you will at least be on par with them. So its a safe bet. You wont beat them , but at least you will join them right.
Also try asking a few local hobby shops see what they have to say. Allthough this notion might just net "what we carry products" over whats the best. But there are some cool hobby shop owners. So be careful. Id basically stick with what your local racers are running. Ask around , ask many. Also ask where they are getting the stuff.
But besides that.
Here comes my personal opinion.
My favorite tire right now is the Twister Tire. I did a good bit of testing , still have quite a few more to test. But the twister tires seems to work best for me. Amazing grip and drive. Id say it made my car run almost 2X better, I can really take it to the edge. Others ive tested , ellegi , jaco nitro shoes and a few others. I gotta check the box....but so far I like twister the best. Been sticking with them.
Also what climate are you running? Or better yet what state are you in?
Either or Id start with like a 37 shore tire all around and play around. Some like to run a harder tire up front. Like 37 shore front , 35 rear.
I just tried 35/35 on the twister tires and its been my best combo yet. I was using a one-way car on a parking-lot (tight and technical track) and I was blowing through the corners like never before.
