I really like the 270M wheels. I'm also toying with the idea of a square setup with Breyton GTS wheels, 19x8.5 ET30 with 235/35s. They have a nice looking version in matte grey.

Did you consider just getting a set of winter tyres fitted the original rims over winter? I'm considering a set of Alpins for around 1200 then swap back to Sports for Spring.

Not really considering that. I really want a 235 width square setup for light to moderate snow. And want a dedicated set of winter wheels/tires so I can swap myself instead of re-mounting tires twice/year.

I have driven my E36 M3 through 10 winters with full size 225/245 staggered winter tires. It has worked just fine. But with the 1M torque I'm going a little more conservative.
