Looking to see opinions on on the Mich Pilot Alpin PA3 performance winter tires in these conditions.
I am hoping that the performance will be good enough instead of studdless.
No experience with the Michelin's, we run Bridgestone 225/40/18 & 255/35/18 Summer Performance staggered setup and Blizzaks 205/55/16 winter tires (studless) in a square setup. Superior handling in snow and ice. We run these on the wife's 325i RWD. It was recommended to run a narrow/square set-up tire (i.e. 55 series) versus a wider/staggered set up (i.e. 40/35 series) the narrower tend to cut thru snow better.
Check Tire Rack & Car and Driver, both have done comparisons of "winter tires"
