Good Street tire with Symmetric tread

Camber is killing my front tires. I'm thinking that if I run a tire that has a symmetric tread, I can flip the tires on the rim and get more wear from them. In looking at a lot of tires on TireRack though, most summer tires are asymmetric. Only ones I've really found are the BFGoodrich G-Force COMP 2. Those seem to have pretty good reviews (and are fairly inexpensive as well) but I wanted to see if anyone had other suggestions before pulling the trigger on those. Some of the more track friendly tires are symmetric but I want something longer lasting than a 200tw tire.

Any suggestions?

Is dialing out camber not an option for you?

Not to any real extent. It's setup for -2.8 and 0 toe for the track. I could dial it back a bit for the street but not enough to make a real difference; any more than about -2.3 would create too much toe in and I don't want to have to mess with both the toe and camber when going between street and track.

Ad08r is sticky and quieter than an rs3 but expensive.

I was going to say AD08 as well. Good compromise tire.

The RS3 wears like iron on the street (and sucks in the rain) but availability is limited now that the RS4 is replacing it
