Ya this is what ticks me off. I don't want to run 18's either, so I'm getting a second set of 19's to put winter rubber on. Really would like the PA4's since I live in Portland and need something that does great in dry/wet but can handle the occasional 2" of snow. I have to be able to show up to work across town in my daily driver, but I refuse to run dedicated winters and ruin the fun of having a new M3 for months out of the year.
So far, on ZCP rim sizes (I'll get Avant Garde's M359 Blacks) I see the following options:
265/35/19 rear / 255/35/19 front
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60
Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3
275/35/19 rear / 255/35/19 front
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60
Bridgestone Potenza RE970AS Pole Position
Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Goodyear Eagle F1
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3

After combing reviews extensively, LM-60's would be great on snow days, but I'll wish I had the A/S 3's most of the rainy 40 degree days. We also miss out on Dunlop 3D and 4D's at this wheel size. Anyone who can help us set up a ZCP 19" winter tire who lives in the Pacific Northwest and has experience with this rubber?
