Any advice on having a m3 in the winter? Preference of tires?

Thanks!

Try the "search" button.

My recommendation is store it in the winter. I live in Rochester and winters are brutal up here.

Why are you moving, that'll be a huge adjustment. But yes, a decent 18" winter tire will do the trick. Blizzaks rock.

Put a set of winters on and have some fun. I spent a winter in Oswego/Syracuse with a set of Michelin PA2s on my M3 and had a ball. PA2s aren't even full winter tires; they're performance winter tires. If you are worried, get a set of snow/ice tires, but they're not necessary unless you are out in the frozen tundra of Canada or the Rocky mountains.

I agree with Radiation Joe (and actually I'm not that far from you, Joe) Mid-Atlantic state winters aren't too bad with PA2s or PA3s or WinterSport 3Ds or Pirelli Sottozeros. Just slow down a bit and let your winter tires do the work.

You will certainly want to get dedicated winter rims. Changing tires on your OEM rims twice a year will ruin them quickly.
