Default Coolant mixture

Hey Guys,
Have been trying to think through this one for a couple of days already, and I've decided that the collective wisdom here is probably better than the lone thought processes in my mind.

I'm in Singapore here and the weather is ALWAYS hot, so there is NO need for anti freeze.

I'm already running a 55mm Koyo Racing Aluminium radiator, with 2 high Speed SPAL fans and a 1.1 bar Radiator cap.

previously, I've run
1. distilled water with a bottle of Redline water wetter
2. distilled water with half a bottle of water wetter
3. distilled water

I'm now trying to figure out wheter it's better to run a coolant together with water wetter.

Help! What would be a good compromise? Would it be best to just run water and redline? or water, redline and a coolant?
