225 40 R18 Winters?

winter is coming, im going to need to brace my e92 m3 with snowtires.

a local garage is doing 225 40 R18 Evergreen EW66 for a very good price.

I did my research the answers on 225 are varied.

And does anyone have experience with evergreen ew66 winter tires?

oh and i don't care about narrow tires look ugly.

And will i only need to get 225 40 r18 rims?

better buy tires that are made & suitable for Cdn winter.

You should be able to find the Bridgestone LM60 on clearance @ tirerack now.

What he said ^

LM60 are on clearout right now on TireRack or you could go with my preferred tire WS70 (a lot more safety orientated than performance).

225/40/18 is too small for an M3. Narrower is better in the snow but the overall diameter of a 225/40/18 is too small.
