Thanks all for inputs! I ended it up ordering cable chains.

Here is my reasoning:
- new winter tires are about $800 (with installation) for my car - it is too much for me to pay considering it's going to be just one trip a year;
- used tires - couldn't find any decent ones;
- renting... well, it is like paying extra to drive some average car. You are not saving with it unless you're renting some small/compact car. BMWs are the one of the most safest cars out there, so I'd rather be in BMW in case of an accident. Insurance will cover the transportation if needed.
