If rain is an issue the S-02's are the best of dry and wet handling. If you live in Saudi Arabia than the Michilin Pilot SX are great.
Did you say snow. Are you going to take $2000 worth of wheels and drive them in the snow? I would either get a good 16in snow package, say Pirelli or bridgestones for the winter and not destroy your $2000 wheels. I have had my blizzacks in snow so deep that my 328is had snow going over the hood. It can be great fun! Do not put chains on the 17in wheels you have, it will scrape the paint right off.
Check the tire rack, they have prices and selections on line.
