ideally no. The staggered set up on the F10 is for traction and to combat oversteer, none of which are important when you are driving on snowy roads. Ideally you want a smaller rim and tire for winter driving not a wide rim with low profile tires. I know 17's don't look that hot on a 550, but when you are tracking through the mush, apperance is the last thing on your mind.
BMW sells their own set for the F10 and recommends:
225/55-17 with Run Flat Dunlop SP Wintersport
