Even with the stock 255 rears it feels like this a bit sometimes

Time for 275 RE-11s... I'm not even putting the stock 255 Contis back on.

Great so far through two storms. Running 225 tires all around (LM-60) with much better results than the 245 Michelin PA3s I was running on the M3. I think the M3 had the potential to be the better vehicle in winter if it had better rubber like the LM-60.

Yeah... function over form for winter The pictures I had in my review thread had pictures of these wheels and tires on... they don't look too bad but they are skinny.

Also running PA3s and I'm not totally won over, though judging from the mild winter we've had, a performance oriented tire may not be so bad.

Glad to hear the C63 is handling the winter well. I've heard previous years had issues when the going got rough.

Saw one on the road today, just sounds and looks like such a beast, I love it.

I have had PA3 on a G35 and a Z4M and it is a great tire for clear or wet roads. If you really have to travel in more than 2-3 inches of snow, I would definitely go for something more aggressive on a RWD car.
