The Semperit is owned and operated by Continental. For the 3 series, H-rated Semperit Speed Grip is recommended. It rides quietly and predictably at high speeds (401). Great snow, ice and slush traction. However, if minimal highway driving and/or unplowed back road is the normal daily winter commute, then softer tires might be necessary

That's a good deal. I plan to have it mounted and balance at the dealership since I will be using my stock mags on the car for the winter.(I plan to upgrade to 18" wheel after next summer)

Installed the Hankook W409s yesterday - they're pretty squishy.

yes they are... you compromise highway handling, but they perform great on slush, snow, ice around the city / sidestreets / back roads.

Where did you buy it from? I saw joycity tires selling for $575 tax and installation included. (still thinking between w409 and dunlop 3d, or even toyo)

I got them from Speedtech (166 Bullock Dr, Markham).

Dunlop 3Ds are H-rated, are they not? tires23.com quoted me $510 all in for the W409s in 205/55/16 -- note that they are T-rated and quite a bit softer so I'm actually a bit worried about wearing them out fast ... good thing is that I don't really put a ton of mileage on this car so hopefully it won't be too long til the temps drop.
