Default BFGoodrich GForce sport

just got these installed on my DD miata the other day for $430 out the door.

Grip is amazing, although ive never had tire this performance oriented before ... so i have little to compare it to. However, the turn in performance has suddenly become more sloppy than I care for and so ive been looking around for a shock spring, coilover, whatever setup to firm up the ride. I have been dissatisfied with the stock shocks from the start anyway.

I was thinking kyb agx and ebay coilovers. I would like to drop the car, but no more than 1/2 an inch (thinking 13" F 13.5" R) because suspension travel is more important to me than looks. I have also considered buying Tien basic, but unsure that the performance benefit would be worth the extra $300 or even a bit more that the basics would cost. Overall I want good handling, but I am not interested in paying 2x the price for the last 10 - 20%.

Any thoughts?

mine are 205-55-15 mounted on 15x7 +32 wheels. I have had a little bit of rub on the front, but i only have 1* of camber up there. They are also a little bit bigger than stock size so the tach is off a little bit.
