The panic started about August last year and the snow never came.

Looking at the forecast next week is looking mild for us all.

we've already had snow this year? The car handles real nice on the Falkens, breaks away very progressively, which is nice.

Are those not m3 alloys? Did you need to roll the arches to fit them?

Ha ha ha. Do you not see the arches getting rolled in the second picture?

If all else fails, you have a choice of Range Rovers in the background too at least.

Yeah, they are M3 alloys. The offsets are challenging when trying to fit on a lowly 330d - but it's worth the hassle as they sit nice and flush. I went for 235's and 255's, which is a reduction of 10mm front and rear compared to the standard fit tyres. No rubbing, even sitting on coilies.

The Range Rovers will come in handy, but should the snow come when I'm miles from home, I should have a fighting chance of getting home.
I only had to roll the rear arches, plenty of room up front.

February is apparently when we are going to get hit hard.

Obviously I did yes. why is it funny?

I asked the question because I didn't realise you would need to do so to fit those wheels to the E90' not because I am a moron who can't see what is in front of me.
