I got 4 all season yokohamas that are only 5 months old on my car. Will those / traction control/ and 300 lbs. of sand in the trunk be enough to keep me on the road? or Should I get winter tires or even studded? I live in NH and it snows quite a bit in the winter? Thanks

Hate to say it, but you are better off with snows. My Bimmer parts guy says I'm better off getting another set of rims (steel if money is an issue - they make BMW steel rims and hub caps) so that you don't damage the high tech rims on your car currently changing the tires in and out. Out here on the Wet West Coast of Canada, you can get away with all seasons, but in NH which is really more like the Great White North (Canada) that the rest of the States, weather wise, you're better off playing the conservative card and going with snows. If you're rural and plowing is an issue - maybe studs.
