Hi. up until 6 months ago my cars have been front wheel drive, so then the snow came and i could not get up my drive in the car[bmw 328] any incline was a no-no [i live in the stix] so would borrow the wifes golf and no probs. I am just getting rid of some alloys two with a buckle[from previous owner] but am thinking may be put snow tyres on two good ones and stick on the back in the crap weather?They are wider than the front as i have gone back to standard. I know we dont get much snow here but so much hassel last year i dont see a grit lorry. Would this cause a big problem in handling? before i get rid of 4 wheels. Thanks in advance neil
I would recomend doing the winter tyres on all four corners not just the rear, and dedicate your older set of wheels to them, if need be depending on the damage replace the damaged ones. you should be able to fine replacments either used or replicas through some vendors or salvage/wheel places (don't know much about what might be aval in your region).

I bought a set of Blizzaks for the rear of my 328 and have driven it that way for the past 2 winters. We've had 2 snowy winters and never had a problem, I do reconnect my ASC-T in the fall. Just make sure they are the same size as the front. I run 225R50-16's
