I run the M2 and have been happy with its dry weather performance for a snow tire. Striaght line traction is definately compromised, but handling is pretty decent. I have not tried the Pirelli, so I cannot give any credible feedback as to which is better.

Thanks TCM,
can you comment on M2's dry perf a bit more? how's the noise & treadlife? Do you think the dry perf. is high enough that as long as you took it easy you could drive with them during the summer?

Pro, I'm running the Dunlod Graspic DS-1 which were the predecesor to the M2. It is a great tire and have been thouroughly pleased with it in my Canadian winters. I'm running a 235-45-17 configuration.

I believe Dunlop now makes a 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 in the M3s
