Official "Winter Mode" thread

Let's see what your winter mode is this year, did you buy a beater? or put on some winter tires on your m3 and have a blast?

snow shoes!

Here are my new snow shoes! Just had them put on today. Sorry for the piss poor iphone photos, but I'll post real photos after I get the car washed and detailed next week. I got some AC Schnitzer Type V 18" replicas with Pirelli Sottozero's. I reallly like the look! Can't wait for the snow to start falling!

side note, 18's plus snow tires are such a softer ride compared to the competition wheels...

Garaged October/November until April. Winter or all season tires are required in Germany for the winter months. Having been raised in New England, I have seen the beating the paint can take from winter road treatment.

If I was home this winter, I would driving a Honda CRV as a winter vehicle. At least I get back home in early summer!

I have a set of M6 reps that I would like to use for my winter set up for the new M3. Can anybody recommended a tire and size if the current General Exclaim summer tires on them are 235/35/19 & 265/30/19? BTW, the front offset is 35 and the rear is 33.
