The other question I have is what size tyres are you all running for winter? 225/40/18 all round or 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rears?
I don't mind the the drive of the run flats to be honest with you. Was thinking of getting these tyres for winter. They are run flat.
PIRELLI 255/35R18 94V WINTER 240 SOTTOZERO SERIE II. RUNFLAT
PIRELLI 225/40R18 94V WINTER 240 SOTTOZERO SERIE II. RUNFLAT
I know they are expensive but would be better for my wife when she is driving and I don't want her to get stuck with our 10 month old on a cold winter night. I know we can call BMW out but its the waiting time and an angry baby! lol
The question is do i go 225 all round or 225 and 255. Any more advice would be great.
It is best to get the winter tyres as recommended by BMW for your motor.
Insurance companies normally give a waiver for fitting winter tyres but only if they are:-
'as recommended by BMW for your motor'.
Unfortunatly this is not nessesarily the tyres one would like to fit.
