Default R-compounds on 18x8.5 +44...help me out guys

Currently running T1-S 245/35/18.... on Volk Le28N's 18X8.5 +44.

I am having a bitch of a time finding R-compound tires to fit these wheels like my T1-S fit (perfectly imho).

Can anyone help me out? if you have this size wheel and offset, what do you use for an R-compound?

-Matt

I am running the Dunlop SSRs in 235/40-18 on SSR GT2s (18x8.5, +48). Not the greatest R compound, but cheap

no price doesn't matter here, focus is on silly track tires.

who's burning money? lol. That's in the eye of the beholder I suppose.

I've made my decision though.....Pzero Corsa direzional (or however its speeled).

These are the Corsa's with two rain grooves running down the center...so they have a little higher of a threshold than most R's in case it starts raining, but still has dry grip for days.....so I hear through the grapevine. Guess I'll find out in a week or so when they arrive.
