Input needed on 07 550i tires and rims
Hi there and thanks in advance for your input and comments. I just picked up an ’07 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). I’m looking for input on what I should do regarding wheels/tires… 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 20’s, but would love to put 22’s on her (still need to research and see if it can be done, what’s needed, etc... Feel free to help me out on this too!!!). I don’t 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 18’s now.
What do you all think? Run Snow / All Season just in the back on the 18’s and keep the sport on the front? Replace all with snow / all season on the 18’s? Get 20/22’s and put all season on them and keep the 18’s with sport? I’m stuck and need your input!!
