You have to remember winter tyres have a much lower speed rating, so its your right foot that controls the power. I have now fitted Michelin Cross Climate non runflats (rated to 186 mph), they transform the road handling and ride, perhaps you should read up on them, but having driven your future model, tyres will definitely not have long life especially the rears. My last rears did only 9k and my car is nowhere near your power, plus 4 wheel drive will ensure tyres will wear out evenly, so you will be buying complete sets at a time, also if you switch off traction control continuously.

Always said I would go back to a 6 series
