Help with tires for 162's

So recently I noticed that my rear tires on my 330i are getting worn out. I looked on tirerack and saw some Michelin pilot super sports. Anyone have experience with these? They seemed to be the ones that where recommended. Any other tire sites worth looking at? I have 162's. tirerack quote was about $1200/$1300 shipped for a full set. I'm open to any help. I'm in Cali so summer tires would be good for most of the year. Doesn't rain much here in my city.

PSS is the best but if you don't track they could be an overkill. I would get 235f and 255r on 162s. If you want to improve handling get lighter wheels like Apex, Forgestar etc.

Yea I'm sticking to stocks for now. I don't track my car but I drive fast a lot. Although I have been looking for some deals on wheels and tire combo in offset 18's.
