2018 X3 winter Tire Suggestion Non Runflats

I just bought a 2018 X3 xDrive 30i and I am looking for winter tires for this.

I have some spare rims that are 19"
I am coming up with my search on websites with runflat tires. I would like to stay away from the runflats.

Does anyone have any suggestions on winter tires that I can look at.
I believe the stock 19" rim are 245/50R19

Check out Tire Rack.
I don’t know where you plan to have the tires mounted but Tire Rack shipped my tires to their approved mounter in 2 days. Mounter charged 30 bucks to mount which included road damage.
Word to the mounter. Trickier lift points. I bought from Amazon adapters for jack so as not to damage the lift spots.

I have a 2018 X3 M40i and I'm running Michelin X-Ice Xi2 235-55-R19 but on their own winter 19x8.5 rims. I love X-Ice traction and would highly recommend them.

For my 2007 I went with -1 rim size and then matched up with larger side profile tires. They are cheaper and softer when you hit things under the snow. Use 10/10 tire or some other online tire/wheel sizing app to get the overall diameter roughly the same, I went slightly larger... shouldn't hurt so long as all 4 wheels are the same overall size.

Performance one step at a time.
