Best Budget Performance Tires for 2010 M3

I have just gone through my first set of Michelin PSS; they lasted a whopping 26,000 miles! (no track, no drag strip, just spirited driving).

I may be selling my 2010 M3 sedan next year so don't want to spend the high cost on getting another set of Michelin PSS since I won't be the owner to enjoy them for another 26,000+ miles.

What do you recommend as a good performance tire where I can get all four for say under $700 for tires only in the stock sizes? I live in Houston, TX so all I need is a summer tire. I don't want run-flats.

Just need something I can order on Tirerack.com or pick up locally at my nearest Discount Tire or NTB that will keep me happy until I sell the M3 and get another car.

Where did you get those prices for the Hankook Ventus V12? Tirerack.com?

Also, will 275/35/19 fit on the OEM 19" Style 220 wheel? (I know it'll fit on the ZCP wheels as it is 0.5" wider.)

Performance Plus in Long Beach.
I just got some fronts for around $225 for the 255/35-19.
Ask for David and tell him Austin sent you. He should give you decent price then.
