I've only raced on Azenis, never on the 555's, so I am bias maybe, but the Azenis are the best bang for the buck around. My choice is always between the Kuhmos or the Azenis and it always comes down to the fact I can get two sets of Azenis shipped to me for the price of one set of Kuhmos. The wet traction is phenomenal if there's any tread and the dry traction leaves very little to be desired (though the Kuhmos seem to hold their prime a bit longer).

from what I've read & researched on, the only non-Rcompound Kumho tires that are popular on the track are the Kumho MX's.
Falken Azenis & Kumho MX
both are prbly the best dollar per performance tires on the market

you can always sell your first born for Potenza S-03's & Hoosiers

the Kumho Victoracer V700 (and V710) are supposedly great bang for your buck Rcompounds

Every Kumho I have seen has been a let down. My friend purchased four of them from tire rack and two weeks after mounting two tires blew out which sent him crashing into a curb. as a contrast to that some people have been pretty happy with them.

Personally I like Falken Azenis ST115's they are awesome in the dry and the wet. The only other tire to come close is the Dunlop Direzza.
