Expense is a subjective term, in my mind running cheap nasty tyre can be very expensive if it causes you to crash through lack of grip, poor water clearing in the rain etc.
For regular street riding you don't need nor want the stickiest track tyre either, everyone will have their brand loyalties, certainly if they have been riding long enough to try different brands, for me Pirelli are easily my favourite. so, to that end i would suggest the Diablo Rosso. Dunno what version they're up to, i think it's a III but they're nice, they offer good grip, work well on wet roads and have a nice profile and tread pattern, keep the tyre pressures correct and they offer good life too.
And i try to always replace my tyres in pairs, it's the best way to avoid strange handling, though i know it's not always possible finances wise.
