I plan on buying some new tires, I hate the run flats, and I just wanted a really good look but I feel that the performace is more important too me.

Okay a second question then...I was woundering if get a brake caliper cover would be a good idea, and if so what would be a good one to get?
I wouldn't cover the caliper, let it cool naturally as it was designed. Agree with not going slotted/drilled with the stock diameter brakes, you'll lose sweep area and true "drilled" rotors should not in fact be "drilled", which weakens them. I'd go with stock rotors, looks like they lasted you quite some time.
