Winter Tire Recommendations

Hey guys,
Need to get new winter tires. What do you guys suggest? Need something very dependable. Driving an 07 328i coupe NON xdrive
Also, anyone had issues with their side view mirrors moving when they start the car or even randomly? I don't mean just the glass part, I mean the entire assembly moving so they are touching the pillar above the front fender?
Thanks!

As for the winter tire recommendation you should go with a square setup. I believe the proper size is 225/45/R17 for our cars. If you have sports package with upgraded brakes you will need a minimum of a 17" rim. The tricky part is that not ALL 17" will clear the brakes so I would test fit any rim you intend on installing first (learned that the hard way.....). If you don't have larger brakes you can get away with a 16" wheel. I believe the sizing changes to slightly narrower tire at a 205/55/R16. As for tire recommendations I would start with Simply Tires first (great pricing and selection). See this link for details

I hear amazing things about the Blizzak WS80's and would go that route.

As far as the mirrors folding on their own annoyingly try this reset procedure:

1. Fold the mirror in using the power fold button on the door switch block.

2. Grasp the folding part of the mirror and fold it outward manually. The mirror housing will disengage from the mirror base and will now be in the breakaway position.

3. Operate the mirror via the power fold button. The mirror will now fold out past the expected end stop.

4. Operate the mirror via the power fold button again to fold the mirror in. When the mirror is fully folded in, the motor will continue to run until a clicking and/or popping sound is heard. This sound is the mirror housing resetting its position.

5. Fold the mirror back out, using the power fold button to ensure it has folded out to the correct position.
6. Fold in mirror manually and wait a couple minutes. Then press the BMW logo on key fob and the electronic base should move slightly. Manually slide the mirror back in its original place and it should snap into its original position.
