Choice tire for OEM 19" M3 wheel?

Well, I have all but worn though through the first set of the Conti sports that came on my M3.. Can't say I was too impressed with them, though they did wear respectably having been to four autocrosses and a car control clinic...

I am getting more into AutoX, and even if I decide in a few months to plunk down some money on some 18" wheels to give me more tire options for the track, it doesn't change the fact that I do still need some new tires on the 19" wheels.

So I've been shopping. The OEM rims are 19x8(F) and 19x9.5(R). I am leaning towards Toyo Proxes T1-S at 245/35-19 (F) and 275/30-19 (R) as a good street tire that will also be a good option for autocross a few times. AFAIK, TireRack doesn't sell Toyo, but maybe someone else on the board can offer an opinion on this setup and this size.

pilot sport 2s are head and shoulders above the competition in wet grip, dry grip, low noise design, and unfortunately, price :\

but there is a deal where u can save $50 on 4 new michelin tires.... so if u order them it comes ouyt to about the same price as 4 new bridgestone potenza s03s and the grip on these tires is amazing.... ask anyone on roadfly too...
