I am on summers, but have another car to drive if it snows.

When it gets really cold I will throw on some winter tires

Did you put in spacers? How do the 19s look with your car being lowered an all?

Of course.
I only had 10mm spacers from my 360s (which I used up front, as the rears as close to the fender as possible).

So I put the 10mm spacers in the rear for now, and Im awaiting my 15mm spacers for the front. Should be here this week or early next week

If it was mine I would as the Pirelli 20's that are on it are crappy in the snow.I was given this truck to drive for the winter and it had 20's.The truck that I had ordered for myself had the 18" all terrains which are very good in the snow.

I posted the pics in another thread if you want to see the 19s with the 10mm rear spacer, I will take more pics when I install the front spacers

Yep, that would dictate that I'm also getting to be a "veteran" in age also..

Got my first BMW in early 1971, a lightly used 1970 2002. I had two other 2002s (1972 & 1975), a '72 Bavaria, a '74 3.0CS (wish I would have kept it), a 1976 530i, 1978 733i (didn't like, too big), 1982 528e (no power), 1983
533i, used 1981 528i, and a 1986 535i. Then a big time gap to my '08 535xi and now the M3.
