Best replacement tyres for 718 Cayman in 18” (235/45 r18 and 265/45 r18)

Hi - I know the Michelin PS4S is regarded as the best tyre and from what I can establish this is for 20” wheels.   What is the best tyre for standard 18” wheels please - which are n rated?

If you can source them, I would recommend Michelin Pilot Sport Super Sports for your 718 on 18" wheels. These tyres are the predecessor to the PS4S.
I wouldn't worry too much about the lack of N rated Michelin PSS in your 18" sizes. They are an excellent tyre for all conditions and superior to anything Pirelli can offer.
