265/35 ZR19 98Y 10Jx19/ET25 (BACK)

2) WINTER TIRES AND RIMS

The search isn't that easy...
I'm still looking for a decent winter set too.

Some options over on the M3 forums (hope this isn't a repost):

I've been looking at options through EAS and they're pretty good.

Coming from Australia that has no need for snow tires. Can anyone tell me why a lot of ppl are opting for smaller and narrower wheel/tire rather than the stock staggered 245/35 R19 265/35 R19 setup? Is this actually a manufacturer's recommended setup?

Narrower tires won't float on top of the snow like wide ones will, but instead will cut into the snow to gain traction.

I mounted the 270 M winter wheels (original BMW set-up) and it looks.... crap
From the side and the front it is OK, I think the wheels are nice for winter wheels, but the rear wheels are far to far inside. Looks pathetic. Spacers are needed, badly! No clue why BMW sells the set-up like this. (fair enough, mine is lowered 0.5cm in the back, but that doesn't really change the looks a lot)

Mount 20mm spacers rear you have same wide as original. Front are 2mm wider then original.

They had to use one ET value because otherwise they had develop 2 different size wheels.

I think they are perfect for winter. I have 20mm spacers only at the rear and now the fitment is perfect.

that is what I have planned, unfortunately spacers are not road legal in Switzerland without special papers. And as the 1M is rare no manufacturer of spacers offers spacers including the needed papers

Decided to turn the 1M into another garage queen for the winter instead and got this for Snow and Home Depot duties 30+ mpg helps also

I'm going to install the BMW Performance snow melter option on my 1M. That seems far easier that finding decent winter wheels/tires that don't break the bank.


I finally decided to go with a square set-up...VMR 710's 18 x 9.5 et 22 in gunmetal with Blizzak LM-60's 245/40R 18, I really wanted studless ice and snow tires however they are only R rated....

I noticed that your 1M and GTR have turned their backs to the Fit...

What make of spacers do you have? I have never fitted them to one of my cars but I have the 270M wheel set and could do with some for the rear too.

Some requested sidewall shots of my winter wheel set up.

This is a Blizzak LM-60 235/35 mounted on a VMR 19x8.5 front wheel. I have 15 mm spacers for the front to approximate OEM fitment.

Do you guys know if the BMW Wheel & Tire Insurance will cover snow tires we put on the car? Does it have to be a particular tire?

If so, it may affect my and many other's tire choices..
