Snow Tires

Hi, I live in New York and I got a 135i. I'm wondering if it's worth it to invest in snow tires with winter approaching?
If so, suggestions on where to get them?

If you plan to drive you 135i in the winter, not only is it worth it...its completely necessary. You can get away with a good set of all-seasons 90% of the time (i did last year), but nothing will beat a set of real snows. Judging from last winter, I'd say definitely get snow tires, and you probably won't have much issue this winter.

Tirerack is where I get most all my tires. Somehow I get them overnight almost every time. Their prices are the best too. highly recommend tirerack.

You definitely need snows and tirerack has great deals on 17" setups which would be optimal for winter. I got my setup from them last year and it rocks.
