Input needed on 07 550i tires and rims
Hi there and thanks in advance for your input and comments. I just picked up an í07 550i. She has all options with exception of night vision and adaptive cruise control. Black on black with 26,8xx miles. Still under BMW warranty till 3/10. Will be posting pics soon of current and past! I live near Chicago and winter is coming up (I know, I should have bought SUV). Iím looking for input on what I should do regarding wheels/tiresÖ She has the sport package and has Dunlop SP Sport 01 run flats on now (front 245/40/18; Rear 275/35/18). Front tires are like new; rears have about 35% left.
I would like to get additional wheels/rims and put sport tires on them. Currently looking at Beyern 20ís, but would love to put 22ís on her (still need to research and see if it can be done, whatís needed, etc... Feel free to help me out on this too!!!). I donít really want to drive in winter with the sport tires on but can if needed, and I would hate to just discard like new front run flats on the 18ís now.
What do you all think? Run Snow / All Season just in the back on the 18ís and keep the sport on the front? Replace all with snow / all season on the 18ís? Get 20/22ís and put all season on them and keep the 18ís with sport? Iím stuck and need your input!!
