E92 Tyre recommendation

My M3 E92 has manufacturer supplied Michellin Pilot Sport 245/35, 265/35 mounted on 19" alloys. I am replacing this set soon due to wear (9000 miles) and would like to know whether anyone out there has good experience with other mades of tyres.

Garage List
if you are doing this to save money
i would pick up a set of OEM 19's from the for sale forum, and usualy with very low miles
usualy about half the price of new ones
now you can't beat PS2s for around $600

Actually I am not sure whether the Michellin PS2 I am having is the best and I am comparing Pirelli P zero and Bridgestone Potenza RE050. I am looking for grip and wear rather than wet performance and I wonder whether any E92 owner has tried them.

I replaced mine with Vredestein Sessanta inc 275/30/19 rears being the only change to standard. Only PS2's come readily in 265/35/19. So far they are very impressive. Mega grip on the rear. About 175 a corner fitted and balanced in this neck of the woods. Ken.

So it's been a while, I'd like to know how your opinion of the tires now? And how are the Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas in the wet?
