Congrats on your new 335i purchase !!

Providing your 335 M Sport does not have the M Sport brakes option, then you can use either 17" or 18" winter wheels/tires. IF your car has M Sport brakes, you must use 18" wheels (or 19"). Since you live in a snow belt, it would make sense to invest in a dedicated set of winter wheels/tires for driving in the November-April Ontario weather. If you do this, you will extend the tire life of your 19" summer performance tires.

You are a lucky guy to be able to get your hands on a 335i Xdrive so quickly. The 335i RWD is much harder to find and the long wait is driving me nuts !!!
