Smile Best Tire opinion's please!?!?!?

What is your opinion, what is the best all around tire for an e92 M3 driven mostly on the street? I just bought a set of ISS Forged 20"X11" and 20"X9" so I need a new set of tires soon. The wheels are shipping sometime this week, please help ASAP!!!!

Thank You all for your input.

I have a set of 18" TE37SL's that I will be using for the track and aggressive driving and I have Hankook R-S3's on them. They seem to be the preferred tire for track wheels on here.

BUT I also have a set of 20" ADV.1 ADV10's that are more of a street/show wheel that I have Nitto Invo's on them. They are a relatively cheap tire and have decently good reviews. I also really like their tread pattern. I didn't buy anything really expensive like Pilot SuperSports because I don't plan on any track or extremely aggressive driving with them. People are going to tend to recommend the most expensive tires because they are the best, but buy what you think you need based off of the type of driving you will do with those specific wheels on.

Hankooks are not a bad choice, along with Yokohama's Advan Sport.

right now Pilot SuperSports are the best. They seem to be the first of the "nextGen" series of tires. So comparing them to most tires is not fair at this time. In a few months, I am sure that Pirelli and others will come out with similar stellar tires.

Tirerack gave them a great test and review. I concur with their results. I got a set for my 911S and did some tests that showed grip up about 10% in dry from my PS2s. They are very quiet and smooth riding, and are pretty light as well. Rain grip is very good and after a few autocrosses, they still looked great. I have my beliefs that the high treadwear numbers are no lie. Braking is a little better than the PS2. My experience with Conti3s was not good, so I will leave that out.....

Cons: compared to PS2s, there is a slight loss of initial steering response.
However, when the tires load up and take a "set", they are R-comp level stick.
The only reason that I would go with something else, would be cost. There are lots of tires that I would waste on track days before shredding a nice set of these.......
