We were just hit with about an inch of snow early morning and the 20" H/P Sport Duelers worked fine. Of course, this was fresh snow and the probably not much ice build-up on the roads yet.

Came from a 2005 535xi to a 2011 x50i and love the upgraded hp and torque. Also, the X5 is roomier for those extended drives and has more cargo space to haul stuff.
