No stock yet from what I gather. I've just had a really useful chat with Camskill tyres. They will have the Vreds for pre-order at the beginning of August so stick it in your diary! They'll be getting loads of 225/45 17".

What I've just learnt though is that BMs have a separate winter tyre sizing which is on the inside of the door or petrol flap. And that even if the summer sizing is different (eg 8j front and 8.5j rear) that they move to a same sizing all round for the winter.

Frustratingly, in Germany and Italy when you buy a BM they come with two sets of tyres as it's law that they have them in the winter. Presumably that's all reflected in the price but how useful would it be if BM did the same thing for new cars too. Esp given how woeful BMs are in the winter without the winter rubbers!

Is there anyone there with a recent 330d M Sport that could tell me what the winter size is please? And if there's a note that states what the minimum size rim (17" I'd expect) and tyre size is?

Anything else I learn I'll post up here in case it's useful for anyone else.
