I went with my old E46-fitment 18" BBS REs and Michelin PA2 tires; 235s in front and 255s in the back. Needed to get some spacers to offset the offset difference, if you know what I mean.

The tires feel less squishy than I thought they would. Really not too bad. Of course, the already available power-oversteer-on-demand is even a little more available now, with a 10mm narrower contact patch on each shoe. But at least these tires will actually produce something resembling grip when it's colder than 40F outside.
