View Full Version : What size winter tire do I need?

I have 16" Z3 rims and Im looking for a proper winter tire (hoping to get Michelin SP2's).
What size do I need? My car isnt lowered and the most it would ever be lowered is 1" so what do I get?

The snow tires I had were 205/55/16. What's the size of the tires that are on the rims now ? The stock size that came with the car was 225/50/16. Some say narrower is better, some say it doesn't make a difference. I didn't drive on the snows long enough to really notice.

205/55/16. 225/50/16 would work too, but it wouldn't be as good in the deep stuff.
