I have a square set of Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3 tires, P235/40/18, for sale on the M3 forum which may fit the bill. I actually have the Extreme Contact DWS on my 19" factory wheels and they are great, just not quite as good in the snow and ice as the PA3's. Here is a link to my ad on the M3 forum.


If interested, e-mail me at peterpan@wi.rr.com. If not, all the best, the DWS is a good choice for an all season tire.

If you have trouble viewing the link, let me know and I can send information and photos.

Thanks for the information. The 189 staggered used wheels I just purchased has the two different sizes. I will probably just have to go to tire rack in a few months when I can afford new.

Thanks again for responding - take care

Absolutely your call. I used these on a staggered set of 219M wheels, 18x8.5 and 18x9.5, and they were excellent. In my experience, 255's are a little wide for winter use. Good luck.
