Say I get the Sport Edition A7 18x8 all around with a 235/40/18 winter setup
Will it rub if I have 18mm front/15mm rear spacers?
I don't want to take the spacers on and off each year

If anyone is interested, I'm shortly going to list a set of Sport Edition A7s with Michelin Pilot Alpin 235/40, 255/40 for sale. Rears have at least one winter left, fronts have lots of tread. I'll list them in the next week or so.

Any particular reason why no one is selecting the Pirelli Scorpio setup in the exact sizes of the stock 18" setup? I need tires just for occasional snow and ice, but otherwise the car is garaged most of the week. A little too much snow for the all-season setup, but don't need the square setup.

Was thinking Pirelli in 245/40-18, and Pirelli 265/40-18.

I also saw that while shopping for my set. Called Tirerack and was told that there is no difference. The $242 was made specific for a Mercedes. Why would anyone pay $30 more even if they had a Merc, I don't know. Ordered my staggered set with Ben at Tirerack and now ready for my E93's first NE winter.

245/40-18 square work?

Hi guys,

Sorry, read the thread and am still confused. Will 245/40-18 square work on
The stock staggered 18s?

Or how about 245/40 up front with 245/45 rear? I'm in MN so I need real winter traction for snow and ice.

I'm hoping to stick with nokian wrg2 although if Ben has a good deal on equal or better tires ...

Thanks!

Ben,
Do you have in stock the Blizzak LM-60 staggered? I have the stock OEM 19s.... or what would you recommend being that where I live, we do not get much snow (maybe 2 inches all winter). We mostly get cold dry days and night and sometimes rain and freezing temps. But I do travel on the highway during these conditions as well with added "light snow fall". Any suggestions? or would I even need a "winter tire"? may "all seasons"?

Blizzak LM60 255/35R19 F and 275/35R19 R are what most are doing for OEM 19" wheels in winter.

Click this link for current price and availability:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSe...&affiliate=AW8

When viewing the tires, you will have a spot to click "Shipping quote" and enter your ZIP code.

Sorry for this somewhat general answer, but I wanted to post it so it would help future viewers.

LM 60s are the only staggered 19" snows currently available. 255 F 275R. I'll reuse the link I just posted a minute ago http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSe...&affiliate=AW8

Click the link and enter your ZIP for price and availability. They are in stock right now. $1246 + freight (and tax if applicable).

Sounds as though you could get away with an all season for your winter tire also given how little snow you have. The winter tires stay more pliable at cold temperatures, so they will usually have better grip in dry weather that is very cold compared to all seasons. So you may still find that the winters are worth it, but with that little snow you could drive safely on an all season.

Hi Ben

I'm in Italy and will shortly order an e92 with 18's. i want to take the summers off and put winters on the oem 18's what size and tire would you recommend? I'm thinking of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D.

Then I'll buy some V710's(probably) for summer and put the oem summers on those. And then be done. It fits the budget and the wife's approval.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Timely question. New for this winter, the venerable Sport Edition A7 is now available in black. Currently $129 each just like the silver ones. 18x8 ET20 mounts with stock lugs, needs no special hardware, accepts TPMS and OE center caps.

Wintersport 3D seems to have the best setup for staggered 18". 235/40R18 F and 255/40R18 R. Good for winter use in Europe due to V speed rating and reasonably nice handling when the roads are clear.

Sweet.... thanks for the info Ben. Will these be available to order via tire rack.com or do I need to call you to order?

I ask because I just checked and the winter package selector only shows the silver A7's.

Should be available online, but sometimes the site doesn't pick them up. Our IT guys haven't gotten it perfectly ironed out, so feel free to call me if they are not showing.
