Default e46 M3 ZCP tire - recommendations?

Hello all, I am looking to buy new tires for e46 m3 ZCP Competition wheels. I am looking for all season type tires and pretty standard to the stock tires (I don't have stock tires on them the wheels I bought from someone else). I know the OEM size of the tire is: 225/40/19 (front) and 255/35/19 (Rear), so I wanted to ask for any recommendation on brand? I don't need anything super crazy expensive but reasonable. A link perhaps would be great. Thanks in advance for the help!

tires can be a personal choice and there is no wrong/right answer. The popular brand to get for street usage would be the MPSS - Michelin pilot super sport. Good all around tire, especially in the bay area where we don't have snow. It is on the pricey side. I would go on tirerack and balance out the price/reviews you read and go from there.

I went with Continental DWS06 on my new car and I'm very happy with them. With low profile 19's it rides better than the Michelin PSS tires I had on my M3 with 18's because the conti has a softer sidewall. They will also last much longer than a dedicated summer tire due to the increased treadwear rating.

I actually just saw these and it seems to have pretty good reviews. I'll definitely consider it. Thanks for responding!

Michelin Pilot A/S 3 are supposed to be really good all weather. I'd recommend the super sports for sure.
