: I know, I know - wrong season! I live in Eastern Mass and plan to buy a 528 soon. What do you guys with big tires (17") do in the winter? I plan to get a separate set of steels with actual snow tires, but I don't know what size would be appropriate. Would I go back down to 15"? If so, would that wreak havoc with a tighter-than-stock suspension?

: Thanks-
: Eric

Can someone help? What tire/wheel combo recommended for winter on '99 540i/6-spd.
[Note when I had M3 w/17' whls, advice was do not drop to 16" even though they might physically fit - something about break cooling?]
