M235i Convertible 2016: New Winter Wheels & Tyres

Image
Image
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.
