M235i Convertible 2016: New Winter Wheels & Tyres

Wheels: Wolfrace Drive 7.5Jx17 all-'round
Tyres: Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3 225/45x17
Supplier: Discount Tyre Direct, Worthing, Sussex

Discount Tyres in Worthing supplied and fitted my new winter set of wheels and tyres plus TPMS sensors, based on Wolfrace Drive and Pirelli Sottozero 3 yesterday. Perfect timing, as this morning saw 3.5ºC and scraping ice of the windscreen. Credit that DTD knew all about M-Sport brakes, so made sure the wheels fitted as claimed before they put tyres on the rims.

Couple of comments: Budget for new wheel bolts to match if your new wheels are not the same grey as the originals. Make sure your fitter tries out whether the wheels fit before putting tyres on. Mine does: some suppliers like Wolfrace won't take back incorrectly-sized wheels if they've had tyres fitted, even if they got the spec' wrong. The drive away will involve you getting a TPMS warning and having to reset the TPMS PSIs and temps, which can only be done while the car is moving.

My latest 1 Series with BBS CH 8J ET35 front with 225/40/18 and 9J ET35 rear with 245/35/18, standard M sport suspension at the mo. Scrubs on the rear over harsh bumps and dips, but only a tiny bit on the moulded arch lining. Due for a refurb in the spring after smashing them in a pothole this weekend and will be going lower at some point (whenever I get round to fitting the coil overs).

Previous: E87 118D M Sport remapped etc.
Current: E82 120D M Sport with BBS CH wheels. Black on Black on Black.
