Well I think I have decided on a tire. My local Sears has the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo's available for $500 installed, which seems like a great deal to me. They have been highly rated on this forum and for many BMW owners and I think will fit my driving style perfectly. Now all I have to do is get an alignment from BMW (or a good indy shop; haven't decided yet) and they will be ready for installation. Very excited.
