They look great! You really get that much snow in VA?

I'll be ordering M6 reps for my car in a couple weeks too, but I won't get my car 'till April!

Ice more than snow, but I've already experienced one winter on performance tires to know that I need a set of winter tires. With a little bit of ice or slush I would be stuck with performance tires.

I hear ya. I can't do performance tires at all in winter in my neck of the woods - about 20 miles north of Boston. I'm getting snows right away when my car comes in - on the stock wheels and will be running the M6 reps in summer.

Great looking tires! Can't wait to see those on your car. Can't decide between M3 or M6 reps. Just found out that the 230's won't fit an xi so those are my two choices.

Are those the staggered 19" wheels? I just bought the same set today to install summer tires on. I went to Tire Rack for tires but they didn't offer a Michelin in 19", where did you get the sets from? Also did you buy TPMS monitors already installed?

19X8.5 et 35 with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 235/35/19, 19X9.5 et 35 with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 265/30/19. Yes I got them with TPMS already installed. I ordered them through JleviSW and they did all the hard work for me and come spring all I have to do is take off my stock rims with Winter tires and mount these up.

How much are your 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 staggered sets? 9.5 width fits fine in the rear on the 335i correct?

just curious why do u need TPMS since for all E92s it should be part of the breaking system rather than on the wheel itself.

correct me if wrong but all models here do not need to worry about add'l TPMS to be install when changing wheels.

I hope winter goes away soon as well. But we are getting freezing rain, sleet and a little bit of snow today, so I'm glad I haven't mounted them yet. Hopefully by the time I mount them I will have gotten a set of PSS9s, an exhaust, and I was a test car for a strut brace from Racing Dynamics that fits over the stock airbox, so hopefully they will finish that soon, but only time will tell.

The E90s have it in the ABS system, they use the wheel speed sensors to determine if the tire is getting low. The E92s have them in the valve stem.
