19" winter tires?

Anyone know where I can get 19" winter tires at this time of the year? How much do they normally go for? Thanks guys.

I heard that 19" were very difficult to find (to fit on our rims) and was advised against them. Let us know if you find any and what they cost if you track any down.

I have 19 inch Pirellis but went with dedicated wheels in 19 by 8.5 all around.

I think the tire size is 235 35 19. They were about $240 a tire before shipping and tax.

I'll snap some photos later.

I used 10mm spacers on the back to push them out a bit. 8.5 wide on an M3 at the rear is pretty feeble looking.

I searched for 19's when I got my tires but were apparently on backorder...
