My winter setup: 18" Sport Edition A7's

Snow on the ground today told me it was time to change over to my winter setup.

Sport Edition A7's 18 x 8, 18 x 9
Dunlop 3D's 225/40/18

I don't have too much seat time with this setup but I've had the tires for two seasons and they worked great on my 135i sport pkg. wheels. Spacers might be needed for looks only.

While driving around a bit I noticed the TPMS light hasn't gone on. I don't have TPMS on my winter wheels so I thought I would get a permanent yellow light?

1M does not have a true TPMS, uses differences in wheel speed to detect a loss of pressure in 1 tire.

Im waiting to put on my winter wheels as long as possible, very curious to see how the 1M drives in light snow with an 18" setup.. have you driven the car at all in snow? I went with Vredestein Wintracs. Going to run 10mm spacers up front and 18mm rear.

Keep us posted!
