Question Pirelli Sottozero Run Flat Availability in Canada?

I should be receiving my 330xi sometime this coming January. It arrives with the 17" sport wheels (syle 159 as I recall). These will be my winter wheels (I ski and drive the Coquihalla every other week year round and also drive an occasionally ploughed gravel road up to a ranch many winter weekends!) and will need something better than the all-seasons which they come with.

My dealer has agreed to switch the tires for a winter tire but I am trying to decide which tire to use. The Pirelli SottoZero run flats look like a good compromise as they shouldn't take away from my daily winter (=wet!) driving experience too much. I imagine the sotto zeros would not like my gravel road a lot but I've managed to get our old beater up there (rally style!) with (narrow) all-seasons, plus we have a truck in reserve...

Anyway, to my question! I can't seem to find the sotto zeros on the Pirelli Canada web site? Are these only available in the US?


Thoughts? Comments? Jokes? ... and alternate tire recommendations welcome!

PS- I already have a dealer option on a 1/2 price set of 162's which I can put hih performance tires on for summer use -- the sotto zeros would be in use late November-April.

I had a set of Pirelli 210 on my Acura and i found them to be awesome in the wet/snow. The Sottozero seems to be available in 210 and 240 (in various sizes for runflat application):

As an alternate, you can consider the Dunlop Winter Sport M3. It's cheaper than even the 210 Sottozero and packs a good dose of sportiness. I have a runflat set as do many others here so you can search to see reviews/opinions.
