I have the AVS on my SUbaru in 225/45-17 size, not that different from the M3 size. I like them a lot but they don't have any lip to protect the rim. If you're a careful parker I think its worth the 80/tire you save. I was looking at the pilot sports but didn't get them because they were only rated by the tire rack 0.2 or so points better than the AVS sports.
Since I probably am not good enough to discern a 0.2 difference on the road I and I saved 240 bucks, I think it was wise. And if I scratch the wheel, then I'm stupid.
