run flat winter tire opinions

Garry,
Sorry to post on e90 forum but you don't appear to be on f30 forum so thought I'd try here. I have a 2013 335 xdrive sport line on the way and live in Cleveland so would like a winter set up. I want to stick with run flats. It seems options are limited. I was leaning towards the Blizzak LM-25 but these seem to be dated tires. Other options seem to be Pirelli Sottozero Serie II (which is what BMW seems to recommend) or Dunlop SP Winter Sport M3 ROF. Any opinions?

Also quick question about wheels. Was going to go with sport edition a7's so I can use bmw center caps (and they are cheap). Do I need to buy new center caps or is it easy to pop them out from my current wheels.

Thanks.
