Here in Anchorage the secondary roads are covered by ice or snow for months at a time. On my 1986 528e I have 185 75R studded tires all round and 200 lbs. of ballast in the trunk. Stopping is great, but when accelerating it tends to lose traction and fish tail unless I am careful. I am considering using 195,s on the rear next winter. has anyone else experimented with winter tires?
