Best 18" Tyres Around?

Hey Guys,
Probably been mentioned on here thousands of times but can't seem to find the info I'm looking for.
Just picked up a Mini Cooper S JCW on an '05 with 18" JCW Light Alloy X-lite rims. As far as I'm aware it has the 'Sports suspension settings plus'.
Will soon be looking for new tyres for the front and wondering what the best tyres are on the market currently. Was planning on sticking with 205/40R18's unless anyone suggests the 215/40R18's or 215/35R18's are a better option. Also, best to stick with the run flats or swap to standard tyres. From what I have read on here so far the run flats seem to give a harsh ride. Any suggestions/advice?
Thanks in advance!
