Adding more grip is good, but most would argue that your suspension should require upgrading as well.
I experienced frequent (daily, every time I drove) rubbing with the factory liners. Thankfully the new ones BMW installed have eliminated this issue. Hopefully the new liners will allow for a more aggressive setup.

In a perfect world I would be adding a coilover setup, preferably utilizing JRZ RS1 dampers. But, I can't rationalize spending $4000 on a setup that I will likely under-utilize at this point not to mention the factory shocks have less than 10k miles on them. I figured wheels/tires/brakes would be a good starting point for my modifications.

So for now, lets avoid the conversation of what I should have done. Experience/opinions on tire setups would be greatly appreciated!
