First off, if you have never done any drivers school before, it would be a big mistake to start with R-Compounds as they will stick and erase your mistakes. Not the best way to learn. Most chapters ban R-compounds for novice students. So, forget TOYO RA1s or Kuhmo V700s. But yes they feel good. Under heavy rain, their grip will be marginal and unsafe as they do not have much tread.

The TOYO T1-S is an exceptionally good wet tire and good track tire, maybe a bit soft on the shoulders but comfortable.

The Yoko A520 is also a good all around tire. Track-rain-street.

Another containder would be the Kuhmo Ecsta 712. Performance at a very cheap price.

But honestly, if you have a few minutes to spare, check the surveys on the Tire RAck website.
