Blizzak LM-60 for OEM 19's

Anyone try these yet? I called Tire Rack and they said these should fit the OEM 19" wheels. I'd get new wheels altogether, but saving up for better summer wheels. Might use the 19"s as snow tires if I do to keep a nice look during winter. They suggested i should go same width all around so I could rotate them or I could stick to staggered setup. What do you guys think?

I heard alot of the guys with 19" are going with those Blizzaks as they are the few 19" snow tires. You could go staggered but having narrower tires will make it easier to get around in the snow. Less to plow:-)

but then you'll have to buy a new set of wheels...

if you receive moderate snow, you are fine with staggered 255/275 set up on blizzak LM60s.

I currently run 255/265 on blizzak LM25s and I have survived winter around New York and Philadelphia area

My 19" Blizzak LM-60s should be here this week (but this is also what my tire guy has been telling me for weeks now).

I have heard great things about the LM-25s, so this should be just as good, if not better!

I e-mailed Gary @ Tire Rack yesterday. He replied they were out of the 235 & 255 LM60 in 19". He has some Dunlop Winter Sport 3D in 255/35/19 left. Going with the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme XL from a local shop instead.

They sell out for the season fast.

255 on the 19 x 8.5 looks just fine.. no noticeable visual change from the stock tire size of 245

i will be getting the LM 60's for my VMR's in 235/255 set up and will post back how they are

i use to use the LM 25's on my M5 and they worked amazing. i could go through up to 5 inches of snow no problem. i had more fun in the winter then i did during the summer. nothing like blasting through fresh powder in a sports car

they have the LM 25's for a sick price right now if anyone needs, they just didn't have my size

Guys, I'm thinking about running a square setup. 255/35 dunlops or 265/35 LM25's. For the guys running the 255's now do you think I can squeeze a 265 on the stock 19x8.5" front rim?

Same question. Can I run a square setup with 265/35/19 all around or should I play it safe and do 255/35/19?
