I would go with the Toyo's if I were you. They use them in the Speed World Challenge, and they beat the hell out of them there... But I mean if I were you, it depends on what type of tire you want. If you don't care about road noise... etc...

Anyways, check them all out on the Tire Rack.com

Don't forget the Pilot Sport PS2, the Bridgestone S03 and BF Goodrich G Force T/A KD (or something like that).

I think my top picks would be F1 GSD3, S03, PS2 and T1R, in that order. I don't think the Pirellis and ContiSports are rated as good as these ones.

Yeah, You are right... Pilot sports get a nice high rating by everyone who buys em. I can't afford them though... :)

What he said (for street driving). For more than casual lapping, exclude the GS-D3's.

what's wrong with the GS-D3's?

The Yokohama Advan Neova would be my number one choice for how you are driving the car. They would be the best for the track. Bridgestone actually has a replacement for the S03 called the RE050A Pole Position that would be number one overall for wet and dry handling.
If I can help let me know.

They don't particularly like high temps.

Thanks All..

I opted for T1R's f225 and r255.. So far so good. For those who are thinking of getting new sets of tires, Toyo has some rebate offers for T1R I got $120 bucks plus if your bmwclub of canada member you'll get additional discounts too.. pm me for the tirestore
