Basically you can't get race compound tyres for standard wheels, so unless you are going to change your wheels, the only choice of road tyre you have, is the Bridgestone BT090's.

Think you have Dunlop Alpha 12's available in Australia, used Alpha 10.s for a season with Bemsee, never had any issues with them.
