the falken isnt an R compound. its UTQQ is 200.
popular consensus (and the SCCA street tire classes) rate a R compound tire at below 140 UTQQ.

did u have an autox class in mind. my guess would be STF, if you are shopping street tires, which elminate all the R compound tires like the Toyo R888, and most of the Yokohama Advans. It also would likely steer you away from the softer more delicate street tires that cant handle the heat like the Toyo R1R. I'd be looking at the hankook RS3 or similar.
