Gary, do you have another option for my OEM 18"s that are in stock?

Pirelli Winter 210/240's? (by the way, what's the diff between those 2 tires?)
Blizzak LM-22?

Thanks.

The Pirelli (240 is V rated, 210 is H) only comes in 255/40R18, no front sizing left.

Only option left in 18" for m3 snows is running 245/40R18 all around on stock or aftermarket wheels. It can fit on both stock front and rear wheels. I agree its not the best look cosmetically, but it does fall within the needed rim width ranges and does work on both the 8" front and 9" rear wheel.

What do you mean by not "the best look cosmetically"? What would be different?

I'm really trying to buy something from you guys since you've been such a help Gary.

Thanks.

245/40R18 just looks more narrow on that wide rear wheel. It would actually work better in the snow being more narrow, just doesn't look as great cosmetically as the wider 255/40R18.
