Wink Owner of a 2008 M3 with 265/35 ZR 19 performance tires looking for a winter set


I bought my M3 this summer. My tires are Michelin 265/35 ZR 19'' back and 245/35 ZR 19'' front. They are weighted towards performance and in the recent snow we had in NY, proved worthless in this weather.

I set up an appointment with my service advisor to get a new set for the winter. I have two questions:

Are there good winter tires available for such wheels?

BMW is advertising their new "winter set," which comes with new wheels. Is this much more expensive then just getting the tires replaced and how much better will the car fare performance wise?

Any other suggestions regarding this issue would be great. Thanks
