It's kind of sad but my car actually rides and handles BETTER around tight corners with my snows on than it did with the run flats. I am definitely getting non run flats when the winter is over.

The RE050's are very slick in the cold.

I would really recommend winter tires. You'll have more fun and be much safer.

Yeah, I have never had a set of snows handle as well as the stock, but my Goodyear Ultragrips do. This may actually be because the car is just that good however, because with either set of tires I can pull serious lateral G's. The winters break free on acceleration more however.

dunlop winter sports are nice... i might be getting those instead because my local tire place doesnt have blizzaks in stock and said they are hard to find.

I just bring out the beater..no need for snows

If its not snowing or wet, then I drive the E90...anything else, take the beater.
