Good feedback and your change in size, as you were assured, should not impact xdrive or the electronic assist systems. As long as all four corners are the same (and nothing rubs) you are good to go. I imagine the slightly more aggressive look is a little bonus -- can you post photos?

My personal rule on summer tires (and I am running Pilot Super Spprts on two cars) is don't drive under 40F. Once in a blue moon I will cheat a little and drive in slightly colder temps IF it is bone dry and not forecast to rain/snow.

What are you planning for winter?
