That was the original plan...But, the seller of the Throwing Stars already had Pirelli P210's on them (as he had 2 pair of identical rims for his M5). Since he was willing to part with the snows for cheap, I decided to save myself the time and effort of removing/mounting 2 sets of tires. Besides, the mounting cost, it was a lot cheaper than buying new 15" snow tires.
So, in the spring, I get to buy no 235/45-17's and make the decision on snows for the 15's next winter. All in all, the cost and time factors worked out great for me. And today we shall see how well the 17" P210's work...as the trip from Nashville to Chicago will involve some white stuff !
92 525im - 17" snows for a good price
