In Reply to: Snow tire or All Season? posted by glask on January 06, 2000 at 14:14:12:
: This BMW is my first car with rear drive. I live in an area with around 15 days of snow per year. The deepest we had is around 6 inches last year. My Honda was fine with all season last year. Is there a lot of difference between rear drive and front drive? Should I change to snow tires or all season? I live around Seattle.
: Any input will be greatly appreciated!
Before my supercharged '99 M3, I had a FWD Volvo 850 Turbo, and I made out ok in the NY Metro area. RWD is totally different....One day of snow, if thats a day you need to go anywhere is too much with anything but snows. Fget about all seasons...They're no good on the M3. Better get a set of Pirelli Winter 210s. They're great on the dry, with an H rating, and much better in rain or snow than all seasons. In this area, we've had zero snow, yet the tires are fine. Besides, I know I'm adding months (years?) to the life of the ultra expensive Pilot Sports. And, on the 17" replica Contours, they look good too. Fget all seasons...Youre not in a Honda anymore!
