Hi Ben,

I have a 2012 M3 Convertible on order, production starting 31/Oct, so I can likely expect delivery mid-Dec / early-Jan.

Given that we had our first frost today here in the Pacific NW, I'm worried about the car in the cold.

Can you advise a set of winter tyre / wheel package? Not looking for fancy wheels, just enough to get tgrough the winter. My car will come with 19" wheels ... but I'm told that 18" are better in the cold/ice/snow. With the M3 I'm also going to need TPMS. Do the packages come pre-balanced that I mount myself, or do I still need to get them mounted at a tyre shop?
