The best move?

The best move is very hard to say but i think it is dxc5 Rxc5

Nice, safe route to a draw, which seems inevitable in that position anyway. Black's kingside is well defended and there aren't any obvious d-file tricks, so the best move from a wasted-effort standpoint might be a draw offer.
