At least you understand and know the options.
In my opinion if lease then insurance. If buy and keeping for longer term then non run flats and road hazard.

I agree that going to 245/45X18 is a clear improvement from the stock 245/40X19 inch size but I lost two 245/45X18 Pilot Alpin PA3's this winter to sidewall problems. So I wouldn't call it a...

Another +1 for De-badge. Again much cleaner.

If you do it. Once the pieces on off, looking at them off the car and on a surface - at least for me was confirmation of my decision.

I believe it is different.
The area behind the rear view mirror is a different shape in the black area. Would impact how the device mounts and see's through the glass, as the least.

Sounds like you've made the right decision. Leasing in Chicago, yes go for the insurance. Make sure it's BMW not third party insurance and negotiate as you would any auto purchase, they have room.

I believe the 350 wheels come in two widths because they are using them staggered in Europe, 8 in front and 9 in the rear. In US all Xdrive are same width all round.

Very happy with Michelin Pilot Super Sport on my 535i Xdrive M-sport. If you search you'll find many others liking the PSS.
Do switch to 18" winter tires on 350M wheels due to location.

With the stock 17" wheels on the 528i xDrive you should be fine without the insurance. Of course always some risk but I would just consider it self insuring.
