I went with a snow tire package for my F, which I guess should end up extending the wear on my summer tires. We don't get tons of snow here, but my previous experience with rwd and a/s tires in my 93 525i was less than successful. I got stuck in a parking spot once :mad:

Hopefully with traction and stability control, you will get along okay with the all season tires.

Good luck!

I will also need a snow tire package as well. Living in Toronto we get TONS of snow, so hopefully with the summer/winter tire packages I'll sort of 'save' money and tread, but probably it evens out, who knows.

That's a part of the reason why I'd stick with OE sizes, but to each their own. :)

When I went to the dealership they tried to set me up with Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25. They fit on the OEM rims and should be way way better then the OEM tires.
I wouldn't want to use my OEM rims as winter rims, unless I purchase a set of summer rims that would be more expensive than the OEMs, so probably I'd just buy a set of relatively 'garbage' rims that look decent and slap the winters on that. I was thinking the exact same tire though, the Blizzak LM-25s, but I'm tempted to get them in a size smaller, in 18s, so that there's more bite in the winter with a thinner contact patch as well.

I got a set of MSW rims ($126/ea) and LM-25s in 225/45/18 all around. It has worked pretty well so far, it certainly does as well or slightly better than my 04 TL with all season tires. The ride is slightly better too with the bigger sidewalls. I'm sure handling is a lot worse, but I don't really want to push it with the snow tires anyway :)

Would 255s in the rear be better? Or just go 225 all around for better bite in the rear tires? Just that with 225s in the back, the car would look kinda weird. But I guess functionality over looks, haha.
