Smile Needs Opinions Tires and Rims for 325xi

I was looking at what are the best options for a 2006 325xi as far as a good set of winter and summer tires. I'm currently rocking the base rims w/ the RFT Continentals. I believe they are 17" rims and the tires are just the stock. The winters here in Ohio can sometimes be a bit rough and sometimes mild. The summers are normally very humid and hot.

I'm really interested in the miro 111's but not sure what type of tires to go w/ them for summer. As far as winter I was thinking about the Michelin Xice w/ the stock base 17" rims.

Any opinions??? Thanks!

Look in the owners manual for tire sizes. Your car is AWD and tire sizes must match the stock overall diameter for both differential to spin at the same speed. That's very important.

The Miro 111 wheels are definitely a great choice as it is a sporty wheel with a concave design. There are a ton of great tire choices for you and it honestly comes down to your budget. One of the most popular summer tires is definitely the Conti DWS. I'll go ahead and shoot you over a PM with more details. In the meantime, here are a few more installed pictures for you to check out!
