Finally bought some CD-Rs from Office Depot for general use. Basically, I had two choices - one from China and one from Taiwan. Guess which one I picked? Yes, correct, the one from Taiwan. Here's what the info says on the CD-R:
Front label part: Memorex CD-R 52X 700MB 80min
Outer inner rim (just off recordable, readable from label/top side): RFD80M-79928 80 5E
Inner rim (readable from top): Z KA911131853RB23
Nero InfoTool shows this (pertinent parts):
Supported speeds: 32X - 24X - 16X - 10X - 4X
Blank capacity: 79:59.70
Manufacturer ID: Ritek (97m15s17f)
Looks like I picked the right one.
