R Comound Tires

What would be the best tires and sizes for a set of R Compound tires for Autocross? I have heard the Hoosier A6 of the Kumho V710 are the best one to buy. What size (width) tire would be a good choice for the E46 M3.

The primary choices are Hoosier A6 (probably the fastest but wears the fastest and is expensive), Kumho V710 and Hankooks (which are late to the party but have a lot of interest).
