I have also begun the search with my 1994 530i. I have had a set on there from a tire dealer that is too generic to even imagine why I got them. I have had nothing but problems with balance and wear. I am considering purchasing either Yokohama or Toyo replacements. I have had experience with Toyo on an earlier vehicle, Mazda MX6 GT that worked very well with long tread life and good performance all around. I don't remember the model.
If you want a good place to get some ideas, I recommend either the Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com) or Discount Tire Direct (www.tires.com). Both are searchable by price, size, vehicle, etc and can at least give you an idea of what you are looking for.
I personally am going to upgrade wheels and tires this time since I have had so many problems with the balance. Good luck.
