They are brake dust grey and are offer good performance for an affordable street tire + will only cost $450 for the new tires when I shred the set. I tend to get through tires every 10K miles in rwd cars so cost of tires is important to me. I run Kumho Ecsta 4xs on my MX-5 at track days (am a Novice) and AutoX; not a bad tire. 17" rims means less risk of pothole damage which lets me drive the BMW in the city; no way would 18" or 19" rims last long in downtown or midtown!
Im assuming you will have no problem fitting 17 in rims over the brakes as the factory comes with 17s with non sport pkg, do you think running 16s for the winter w/ snow tires is possible?

Anyway, i am truly excited to see how these work out for you. please keep me updated as i am quite interested in your set up. and good luck
