Winter in Michigan is Not High Performance Weather

Well I switched out my stock 18" rims and runflat tires with a winter tire setup from Tire Rack. I went with a 17" wheel and tire set. The wheels are ASA JH3 and the tires are non-runflat Dunlop Winter Sport M3 XL. After some research on the topic, this seemed like a good setup for the coming onslaught of bad Michigan weather. A lot of owners can't decide whether to go with All Season or Winter tires. The majority of owners who have 3-series RWD cars emphatically recommend a snow tire setup which is why I also went this route. I also read some great reviews about the Dunlops. Bridgestone also makes some great snow tires too. I chose Dunlops because I have had great experience with them on prior cars; though, I've never bought this particular tire. I'll report more on handling and feel after I catch a few bad weather days.

Handling was great through one of the snowiest winters here in SE Michigan.

I would highly recommend this setup for anyone with a 3-series. The rims were easy to clean (easier than my OEMs) and the tires handled fantastically in snow and ice.

Definitely believe that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the internet the simplest
factor to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed
at the same time as people think about worries that they just do not know
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as defined out
the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal.
Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
