Snow Tires

Hello all,

New forum member, wanted to introduce myself briefly and ask about snow tires. I am doing my homework to price out an ED and non-ED new 2011 M3 E92 for a 3 year lease. I was wondering if any of my fellow Midwesterners were able to include snow tires with their lease. If not, did you simply buy them on your own? I don't have much experience here since I've been driving a Volvo S60 with AWD for about the last 10 years and never had to deal with a 2nd set of tires.

Thanks in advance!

Just buy them off the tire rack & have them drop shipped on wheels.

I agree. Order from TireRack.com the tires/wheels/tpm set. You don't want to have tire techs mounting and remounting tires back and forth on your nice rims.

People like a few brands. Do some searching on this site for advice. I liked the Dunlop Wintersport 3Ds, which are very good on dry, wet and snow. Blizzaks are very good for situations where you have deeper snow.
