Winter Tires WTB

Anyone local have a set of winter tires I can throw on my OEM 18's?

Having to lie to my co-workers and tell them I meant to do those donuts when I pulled into the office this morning wasn't fun...

It's very late in the season, but people will start selling them soon. I've gotten a couple of good sets of Blizzaks this way. Good luck!

That's funny. I've got Blizzaks on my 330i and I had a good old time driving in the snow the other day, they really work like a charm. Having said that, you can absolutely push them over the line and get back to sliding but as long as you keep the rpms low on takeoff and give yourself plenty of time for braking then they're awesome.

I've even tested them on a skating rink level parking lot and they got me started and stopped in a remarkably short distance.

Yeah. I bit the bullet too after the half inch of snow we got a few days ago crippled my car. Everyone here should thank me. With this purchase I have guaranteed that it will not snow again this year!
