New England Weather

Going to be dealing with snow soon..
I have the Sumitomo tire HTR A/S P02 Performance Radial tire - 225/40R18 92W front / rear.

These tires are new.. coming off my other car and this car (135i) is too strong. When it rains / making turns I have to be gentle on the throttle sense itís RWD (I slide) What do you recommend and will your recommendation help with potholes? Perhaps a wider rear tire reduces bumps? Right now my car eats bumps. Thatís not the suspension right?

Thanks

first of all: you've posted this in the 1M forum.

second of all: throw away your all season tires and get some proper winter/snow tires. the all seasons are useless for any self respecting RWD car on the east coast. also 225 tires on the rear are way too skinny for a 135i. On snow/winter tires it might work but all seasons? psshh!
