If you want snow tires, these are pretty good. They're not much worse than all season tires in the dry and are amazing in the snow. I'm sure Blizzaks would be better in snow but worse in the dry.

Were you looking for advice on better all seasons than the ones you're using? All seasons on a BMW (especially one without traction control) has always sounded like a really bad idea to me. What's amazing is how good they are with snow tires! Their 50/50 weight distribution actually makes them handle very well in snow (just like in the dry), but you need the right tires to get enough traction to get moving. Another big plus is you get to buy some high performance sticky summer tires for the other three seasons!
