Feeler: OEM 220M with Continental CS2 for OEM 219M / WINTER

Thinking about trading my OEM 19s for OEM 18s? It would be nice if the 18s came with winter tires and tpms.
Just preparing for this upcoming winter!

Depending on the deal it may be just trade or trade+cash.

Or if you have any winter tires for the 220M 19in? Willing to BUY

QUESTION:
If I switch to snows will it still apply for my Tire and Wheel Warranty with BMW? Or do the size of the tires have to be stock in order for it to apply.

I believe somebody correct me if I'm wrong but the tires that came on the car when you bought the car are the ones that are covered by that warranty. If you swap out tires to something other than what was on the car BMW won't cover them if something happens to them. I'm assuming they would still cover the wheel but they may try and pull something.

Some purchasers of the BMW tire and wheel warranty report being told that they were covered for any set of wheels and tires on the car, IF they were BMW OEM models. So if you switched to stock 18's with, say, Michelin PSS, you're covered even though they aren't the wheels and tires you bought the car with.

Problem is, as I see it, there are no OEM snow tires. The "BMW Approved" snows that they sell through the dealer network as a winter package for an M3are Michelin Pilot Aspin P3s, which are not available in sizes that fit the OEM 18 or 19 inch wheels. You can get Pilot Aspin P2s for the OEM 18s. Maybe this would be close enough? Who knows.

The dealer winter package is part of another BMW winter wheel set that fits across E9X cars (not just M3s), given the size of the tires (can't recall) it's is not an ideal fitment to just buy the tires for the 219M.
