It appears that for this winter season, the Pirelli will be the only run flat winter tire option made in both sizes. No one has been able to prove that BMW "tunes" their vehicles for for run flat tires and many go to non run flat tires and are quite happy with the results. If you move to a non run flat tire, the Blizzak LM60 is made in both sizes and would be a step up in snow and ice traction from the Pirelli (but a slight step down in dry grip and steering response).

Going to a more narrow tire in the rear would offer a bit better loose snow traction.
