Here is what I would do: Keep 162s and get PSS tires. They will look better, built to last by BBS and PSS tires are awesome. Then get AA tune and enjoy!

If you are going to spend money don't spend it on junk. Just my 2c ...
I have thought about the cost difference between 18" and 19" and 18" are definitely more attractive price wise. So on that front, I'd say you have a good point. But I really don't have much of a soft spot for the 162's. I think they're just chunky, and don't emphasize the otherwise good looks of the e90. I'm thinking I should try to find a pair of used 701's in an 18" so I can run the rest of the life out of the Bridgestones.

It's definitely not hard to get a good used set. I got 19" m359s with front tires for $900. I keep my 16" oem stocks for winter
