+1 for second set of winter wheels/tires/tpms

I am coming off a RWD '08 335i. I tried my first winter with OEM summers and could barely drive in 1" of snow. Bought a set of 18" cast AL wheels at Discount Tire with some Blizzak LM22's. WORLD OF DIFFERENCE on accel, cornering and braking! While not a deep snow car, it was totally usable on our typical 2-6" CO front range storms. Decent on the cold but dry (90% of CO winter living) and good in slop and slush.

I am 2 weeks away from taking delivery of an '11 e90 and am mounting some 19" Blizzak's LM60's on my ZCP's...a great excuse to buy a full forged summer set up with some great summer rubber and put them on in April/May.
