Hello all!
So winter is at our doorsteps, and I need winter tires.
My ride is:
2004 320i with sports and premium package.
This means that I currently have 16" V Spoke Alloy Wheels - Style 136.
Here are the options I see.

Option 1:
Get new wheels and tires

Option 2:
Install winter tires on my current wheels

The car is a 3 year location (this is my first winter) so I dont really care about having the wheels affected by the salt/shit winter throws at us. My priorities are obviously money and safety.

Anyone has any suggestions on what I should do? Are there other options I should look into? Should I get the tires at the BMW dealership or am I going to pay lot's of money for nothing? What brand of winter tires should I look into?

All suggestions are welcomed!
Thanks!

www.tirerack.com or www.tires.com either one can take care of you. They both offer complete sets, or just tires

Buying second hand 16" steel wheels with new winter tires is what I would recommend. You can also keep your existing wheel and swap tires but it could be more expensive than if you buy second hand wheels.

Hi,

Check Bridgestone Blizzak, it works...

Blizzak

I'm getting 4 of them put on my car next week. Of course my master plan is to just keep the tires on those rims and then get 18s in the spring

Get BMW takeoff rims on ebay from one of those Southern Californians/Floridians who is dumping their stock tires to get the widest summer tires that will fit, buy tires at Tirerack, and have them mounted and balanced at a local shop. They have a great deal on Michelin Alpine PA2's - $125 a piece in the 17x7 inch size. You can run them all day at 3 digit speeds and still plow through any snow.
