Either will do but i would go for DVD-R as it's more commonly recognised by DVD players Ect.

Dvd-r

I typically have better results with -R. A guy in our office "prefers" +R for some reason and he is always having trouble with them...

All new players will read both so it really doesn't matter.
Assuming that you are producing a DVD just for yourself, that thought works. But when you produce it for others, you want it to be highly compatible with older machines too. DVD-R sticks out as the most compatible between the two...
