Has anyone else done something similar.
I've done this with my last 3 leases. As soon as late fall comes I take the OEM's off and store them until I have to return the car, then put the OEM's on.
That way I get full use of the better tires I choose.

I ran the DWS on my 135i, which worked fine for winter and were great during the rest of the year.
For my Msport I'm either getting the new RE970's or another set of DWS, and storing my S001's. I've got about 2700 miles on the S001's.
