Well, what do you want to do?

If you need sticky street tires for autocross, then Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Specs are the ONLY "extreme performance summer tire" that you can get in that size.

Yokohama actually makes the S drive in 185/55 R14 which is a better size for our car--not quite as sticky as the above, but you get a small advantage in gearing and a tire with universally praised characteristics for breakaway and ride.

If you want a DOT legal track tire that you can get away with driving on the street, more or less, (don't try lots of highway miles...) then Toyo makes the R888 in 205/55 R14 too.

On the other end of the spectrum, I had some "Champiro GT Radial" all season no-name tires from China that were ok too. I won an autocross with them, but that doesn't mean you will, :lol:
