285 f 315 r Toyo 888's

A lot of people complain about the noise due to the aggressive tread pattern.

Other sticky choice would be the NT 01 in same size.

Michelin PSS is a better all around tire 285 f 295 r if you want something quieter.

Note all these tires are non run flat

You have 30mm rear spacers? Most people run 20's out back. My car runs 15mm front and 20mm rear spacers.

My stock rims I have 285/35/20 tires on all 4 wheels. I would have done the 285 front and 315 rear if the tires were available to me at the time though, can't go wrong either way, but like he said R888's are loud as shit.

If you only want options for summer tires then-

285/35-20 on front and rear OEM wheels, you can try your spacers or without spacers in front and use the 15mm spacers for the rears just for the clearance on the wider than OEM front tire size.
Otherwise 15 to 20mm front spacer and 20mm rear spacer is what many owners use with OEM wheels.

Extreme Summer tire (non runflat)- wears faster than Max Summer tire but gives good dry grip, treadwear 200. May be a little louder and firm riding than Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport $359.36 in stock at tirerack.com, 300 treadwear. Good choice for street tire used for daily driving but still very good dry and good wet handling with comfort. Comes in OEM sizes and can fit wider than OEM rear tire on OEM rear wheel like 295/35-20 but costs more $408 each (K1 Ferrari spec tire).

No non runflat All season tires recommended. No Ultra High Performance Summer tires recommended.
