The aluminum wheels seem to cause rim leaks, which could be why your car is eating up tires. Watch your tire pressure very carefully. The guy at Belle Tire told me that the rim leaks are caused by corrosion of the aluminum. It make bumps or pits and the tire leaks as a result. They have a fix for it which involves removing the tire, cleaning up the rim, applying a sealer and remounting the tire.

Some tires are better than others in wet and snowy conditions. I haven't had any experience with Cooper cs4's, but I haven't noticed any real problems in the winter in my Sebring sedan, which is a totally different vehicle from your coupe.
