I’m using Ad08. Not very soft but better in the wet than 888s or 48s.

Cheers, I have these on my van and they've been good.

Didn't know if people still used the Avon's or if any other brands have anything on the market.

Avon ZZS on my Caterham 125hp. Perfect for me as I use the same tyre wet or dry. I think most of the road legal track tyres are on the edge of being banned. ZZS on the rear of my Caterham will not last 1000 miles (track), fronts outlast the rears maybe 2 to 1. After Thursday at Brands (very hot) they looked very melted.

They do a super soft. Could Super soft front and soft rear be an option?

I used to use the super soft GGGG on the front of my Exige, it was the only way I could get enough temperature in them, downside was they wore away at the same rate as the rears :o

Sounds like the perfect option to me. Who made the GGGG compound tyres?

Kumho Ecsta V70A are available in super soft/soft and medium , Super soft and soft are a brilliant tyre for light cars.
Not sure the new r888r is available in different compounds or not....
