I'm running Toyo T1-S's at the same sizes you're looking at. And they're great, they keep my car stuck to the road. I do a few canyon runs a week down in the Malibu Canyons, and they've been good to me so far. They were a bit pricey, but worth it in my opinion. Haven't been able to test the wet traction though, not much rain in LA lately.
Well, I just got new tires last Sunday. Read my review here; although I live in Chicago and my car is a daily driver, so those are all season tires - but read the review anyway, those things rock. Otherwise, I've heard that the Fuzions are not so bad.
I looked into the reviews on tirerack and such and bought the Fuzions ZRI about 2 months ago and like them so far. They have great traction wet and dry(lots of rain here lately). Also they have the rim guard(same as Bridgestones) and it works. I tested it accidently the other day, I was cutting a corner a little close due to a car in my lane and went up on the curb. I pulled into a parking spot got out and checked my wheel(I was pissed that I did it) and there was nothing it looked perfect.
I have also heard good things about the Avons check them out too. Inexpensive performance tire like the Fuzions.

I have them on my 325is. They really stick to pavement on the dry hot roads here in Florida. But its been raining ALOT lately and Ive noticed they are not as good as other tires in the rain. They have a nice tread pattern and look great on my bimmer especially when I put the tire wet on them. I want to get some G-Force T/A KDW's next when I get my 18s, BFG all the way baby.
I had the 901's on my 318. Great tire BUT terrible in the rain once the tread got past half its life. They really stick well on dry but are very soft, so the tires won't last you a very long time. My next tires are the ZRi's

Quiet, smooth and good grip. Mind you I've only driven 50km.
But even my dad asked what I did to the car because it felt like a night and day difference.
It definitely felt different on my car as well - with the stock dunlops it felt liek the tire was limiting the car's potential. With the pirelli's, it makes you want to push harder (as if the car already didn't). Like your dad said, night and day. I was just wondering, because that's how I felt after I got my set. I've driven already about 1200 miles on mine. Mmmmm.
