It's my first time putting tires on the Trans Am (the OEM's lasted about 21k miles), so I'm lookin for some recommendations. I'm pretty much sold on the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, but I'm open to advice. Any suggestions?

P.S. Car will be stored in winter, so I'm looking for a summer tire with great traction & decent treadlife.

I have heard nothing but good things about those tires. They are pricey but if you have the money why not? Good luck on your choice.

When I bought my car the previous owner had GS-D3's on the front and the OEM F1's on the rear. The car seemed to turn on a dime, and I had a decent launch. Time came for a rotation and, wow, huge difference. Steering was not as crisp, but now I could hook like a mo-fo. The GS-D3's seemed to almost hook better in the rain too, no lie, bad ass tire...
Wear seemed to be better than the OEM's, I ended up getting a nail in the sidewall a few months later though, had to scrap the tires. I'm running Cooper Zeon's for cost reasons, and it seems like i've had them on for 30k+ miles, they last forever. Nothing like the GS-D3's, but great for the price.

I have the GS-D3's and love them. If you keep them inflated about 40psi they turn really good. You can't beat them in the rain. I've had mine on for about 3 summers and I'm not sure how many miles. The rears still have one season left in them and the front's could go for another 3. I have different size front/rear so I can't rotate them. I'm not normally a Good Year tire fan, but these are great tires.
