Recommendations for New Rubber

Hi everyone...I could use a little help/advice selecting new rubber for my 2007 e92. I'm currently running Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's on BBS CH's - 225/35ZR19's up front, 265/30ZR19's in the rear.

What's the best?

Thanks for your help,
Matt

Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

See tirerack's review of max perf summer tires and the latest (recent?) Car & Driver. PSS came out on top in both.

Michelin PSSes if you can afford it. Conti Extreme Contact DW if you want to save a couple hundred and still get excellent performance without any noise. Hankook Ventus V12 if you want something decent at 5/8 the price of Michelins. Anything less and you're in cheapo territory.

Had Bridgestones RE960s on my Subaru, then the RE050 RFTs on my 335. I hated both, so not a big fan of Bridgestone... maybe their other lines are better? Also had Goodyear Eagle F1's on my A4 quattro and I liked them, but I never really took them to their limits (only had the car for 8 months until my dealer totaled it).
