suggestions for 19' winter tires

sorry if this has been repeated.

i was wondering which winter tires people were using on their 19's. i would rather get 19' winter tires than have to get a whole new set of 18's.

Just get the 18's. The narrower tires will be better for snow traction, and you won't mess up your 19's with all the salt/snow.

by the time you buy a set of 19" snow tires you can proabably pay for a set of 18's with snows\all seasons.

I would go with a set of 18s with snow tires as well. Get a set of CSL wheels or M6 reps for the winter.

plus the saving of mounting and balancing every winter. I agree get a set of 18's for winter.

Unfortunately we do not carry OE wheels, so if buying through us you'd need to purchase aftermarket. 8 or 8.5" up front, 9 or 9.5" rear for the E92 M3.

finding correct winter/all season tires is a PIA for the M3.

The closest I found was 255/35/19 front, 275/35/19 rear. Michilin pilot sport a/s. They cost more than my breyton gts wheels!
