No best tire, but the T1Rs are crap. The stock PS2s are lightyears ahead of those.

The R1Rs are more comparable to the RE-11s

This is a nonsensical question. A tire can not "feel" a supercharger. If you want the best hookup possible get a drag radial, next to that get a track tire. Both will wear out quick. As the best alternative get any ultra high performance street tire and go wider than stock.

Question

Same question here... but also can someone tell me what is the maximum width for the rear tire without rubbing. I have the stock tire on 19inches with 15mm spacer and i would love to look roughly the same with the wider tires.

Agreed, but I think he ment which tire has the best grip to deal with the extra power. In my opinion, if it's a daily driver your best bet is to go wide as much as 305's to keep all that power in check.

If you see it that wide causes the car to understeer, beef up the fronts as well.

I would get Yoko AD08's or the RE11's if you go with 19" wheels. I think they are the most common sticky option people choose for 19" wheels. If you are getting new wheels I would get the widest possible (11" in rear and 9.5" in front). I think 275/30/19 is the widest in the front while 305/30/19 is the widest in the rear. People who run 18" wheels and superchargers seem to gravitate towards the Nitto NT05's. Hope this helps!
