I was flopping between the LM-60 (performance) and the WS-60 (snow and ice) but went with the latter because I will be taking the car into the mountains to ski. This should be the only winter the M is used (still waiting for a 99-01 4Runner to be traded in at a local dealership my friends works at).
You should be fine with that set up. In 2004 I purchased my then M3 2002 in Vancouver drove it home to Edmonton. It had 19" Performance tires on the car when I purchased it. Drove it thru the mountains home in March, when I got home I nearly crashed her in my neighbourhood near our then house. Next day I found a special winter wheel tire set at BMW Bavaria once they were on the car all was well.
I now have a similar winter set up for my e92 only that the wheels are aftermarket replica 18" BMW 220M wheels and the tires are Michelin ICE from TireRack. I got the tires last year and found them to be $500- less from TireRack then if I would have purchased them from Canadian Tire.
I hear you have snow already
Happy Skiing ...
