: I bought a 95 M3 about 3 weeks ago to replace an '88 Integra (daily driver) and a '65 Sunbeam Tiger (toy with no redeeming social value). Anyhow, this will be my daily driver. Yes, I know we're going into summer, but I'm thinking ahead: What size snows fit on the car? I know the factory calls for 215s on 17" wheels, but that still seems a tad wide. Anybody here have experiences with snows, and what size did you go with? Will 16" wheels fit? I plan to buy a second set of wheels for the snows.
I have a 95 M3 also and live in MA i use 225/50/16 bridgestone blizzak they're the best I bought the whole set up from www.tirerack.com for about $900.I didn't get stuck once this winter and I drove in every storm.
