Winter tyres

After reading a lot about winter tyres and needing to replace my rear tyres in the next month, I am seriously considering swapping all four tyres for winter tyres. I\'ve noticed Pirelli do a 19 inch winter run flat to fit the 351 staggered set up for the M sport saloon. Has anyone else done or considered this, or recommend another brand?

I have a spare set of 18s which I share with someone and I just stuck some budget winter tyres on that. They cost 400 for a full set and do a more than adequate job in everything but the thickest of snow (ie like 5 or 6 inches of the stuff)

The Pirelli Sottozeros are excellent - they're the only direct like-for-like winter tyre there is anyway

Just been quoted by kwik fit £1596 for a set of 4 Pirelli sottozero 19" winter run flats to fit the 351m wheels. My local dealer said he couldn't get any, so well done to the Kwik fit fitter, 1 week delivery he said so will order them tomorrow.
