Contis seem to be a safe bet in your size. How many miles do you do?

If noise is not an issue I would probably consider the (not kidding here!) Nankang NS-2Rs (a semi track tyre) which actually have a DOT R rated compound (a bit like other track tyres including the Toyo R1Rs, Yoko AD08R etc.). Unlike their road offerings the initial reviews seem to be quite favourable towards them including a couple of racers who found them great on the road. They come in the right size for the front of the car but I am not sure about the rear.
