Which 18" winter tire in the US?

I have decided to go with the 245/50/18 as winters.

What are fellow X3 owners past experiences with performance winter tires?
Unfortunate I wanted to go with a bridgestone LM route but they don't make 245/50/18s so I am stuck with WS70 (which from my understanding is a great winter tire but not a performance winter tire).

Any other recommendations?
Michellin Pilot Alpin
Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie

Nokian? All the online places I've found only have studded ones in stock .


I live in NJ and have to travel to work even in bad winter conditions and when conditions are clear travel on highways at speeds ~ 75mph with the occasional spirited drive.
