Plans for winter
Winter is here - NJ is getting 4" of snow today.
So will you drive your 1M in winter?

I will be and have winter tires installed today.

I'm getting winters in two weeks. I'd cry not to drive it in two weeks. :bawling:

Cars are meant to be driven not looked at...

What wheels/tires you put for winter?

I went with my old E46-fitment 18" BBS REs and Michelin PA2 tires; 235s in front and 255s in the back. Needed to get some spacers to offset the offset difference, if you know what I mean. :rofl:

The tires feel less squishy than I thought they would. Really not too bad. Of course, the already available power-oversteer-on-demand is even a little more available now, with a 10mm narrower contact patch on each shoe. But at least these tires will actually produce something resembling grip when it's colder than 40F outside.

I have Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D, 235/40 mounted on M Star Spoke 270 18" rims.
Read wheels looks a little weird as they narrower than original.
