New Rear Tyre Time - A Few Questions

Well it's time for new rear tyres again. Did have Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric's this time, and they've lasted pretty well. I've managed to get about 18k out of them.

Can someone confirm to me that the OEM load and speed ratings for the E46 M3 are 93Y front, and 96Y rear?

I've narrowed my choice of replacement tyres down to the newest 3 premium choices on the market at the moment. Does anyone know which of these would be best? I'll probably swing towards the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's if I can get hold of some, as I've still got the first generation version of this tyre on the front wheels. I've used Continental's in the past and been more than happy with them, but the new Michelin sounds as if it's going to be something really special.

What would you have out of this lot then:

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 - 275/30 R19 96Y XL
Michelin Pilot Super Sport - 275/30 ZR19 96Y XL
Continental Sport Contact 5P - 275/30 ZR19 96Y XL
