Anyone know where I can get winter tires and rims?

Any recommendations on rubber?

My car is a 2004 330ci M-Sport

I'm just picking my car up now.

I could probably wait until next winter and only drive when the roads are clear but I don't want to risk it.

What if I go out for dinner in april and it snows then how the hell am I going to get home!!!

I think I called them today they said a set for 1099 and another for 1199 cant remember the names. One was dunlop and the other was european. I can't remember.

He didn't know if the steelies would fit my car but he thinks they would.

If you are looking for new, and are going to keep the car for a while, consider Tirerack.com. They have a ship to canada, final price feature.

$1,260.00 Shipped, Duty, Brokerage.

4 225/45QR17 Bridgestone Blizzak REVO 1 Blackwall
&

You can't really go wrong with that.

More like extra careful on the second bmw. We do not need to ask what happened to the first, or the problems associated with it.

This time I went certified, paid a lot for the car but thats piece of mind.

OK. Hopefully that will work out.

At this time, make sure you call and find out if they are in stock, and when they can ship it. Once it is shipped, it is a matter of days. When your order, it might say when they are available. The Blizzak are a closeout price.

I had mine shipped to the States within 4 days of ordering. I stayed long enough, that they were tax and duty free. :) For my SUV set, I saved over $500. I like Tirerack's service!!!
