Is this a square setup?

Those look great, Transfer.

I had another conversation with my SA and Parts guy at my dealer. They now say that the staggered winter 18" 796M's on showbmw *should* fit on M340i's even with ZTK, and confirmed by running my VIN with BMW. We joked that I was very skeptical they'd fit. They say their info from BMW says they should, and if they don't it's not my problem. With my BMW CCA discount, went ahead and just ordered them. I'll let everyone know whether they actually fit.

Those MSW's look great, and I'll probably buy the exact same set if the 796M's don't work.

M340i Winter Tires?

Has anyone got their winter tires yet? Any recommendations on what to use? I can't seem to find anything that is reasonably priced.

As far as I understand, you can't use anything smaller than 19's because of the M brakes, is that correct?

M340i is standard on 18inch here. There are a lot of good winter tires out there, stay away from the cheap Chinese ones.

That will depend if you got the track handling package with the additional oil cooler and bigger brakes, then maybe . 18s should fit no problem otherwise.

At least some 18's will fit. Example, the 18" 796M Winter package that BMW sells. Dealer installed on my M340i w/ ZTK package, fits just fine. See pix in other thread.

First little snowstorm here in Illinois today. Not a real challenge, but the Sottozero 3's proved grippy, quiet, comfortable, and confident on my 30F and lightly snowy commute this morning. Remains to be seen how they do in significant weather, but so far I'm very happy with them.
