Snows for 550xi

I'm starting to look at snows for my F10. Looks like there are two mfgs for 245/40/19 RFT being Pirelli and maybe Nokian.

I'm assuming the Pirelli will be under a BMW P/N (if it's a BMW P/N its covered under BMW's Wheel and Tire insurance). Tire Rack is listing it's only RFT 19" tire as Pirelli Winter Sottozero at 384/tire.

I looked at Bimmerworld's spare if it went non-RFT, and wow between the donut and the cover it really adds up.

There's a Blizzak in 17" (had them for a 3 series once before), and TR didn't show any RFT for 18."

Just wanted to know if anyone else is starting to look at snows and are there any options out there. I'm probably going to stay with RFT.

I think you can get by with all-seasons, which I agree are no season. It's the other jokers that I'm concerned about.
