As for the tires, I'm coming from a setup that had Michelin PSS's and I'm very pleased with how well these Firehawks perform. They're quiet, very grippy, and very smooth. Highly recommended for the price.
I just found out the other day that the "hyper black" finish they offer for these is actually not a true black like you have but rather a very very very dark silver with a black base coat. After seeing a pair in person, those are what I'm going to get when I finally do the wheels.

I've heard good things about those tires and will probably get them also just because they're so cheap, although I'll probably go with 255/35.

Looks good!

I would go 265/35, the Firehawks run narrow.

Thanks for the input Kaeknows! Great choice of color I may add!
After more research, I am leaning towards the 255/40 ContiExtremeSport for my Wedsport 18X9 +50mm wheels. I am thinking there is less chance of rubbing vs the 265/35 as well as the 255 a better fit on 9" wheels.... on a side note, I noticed a very positive difference in my cars handling once the lca's were installed and re-aligned,
Cheers!
