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
Does 17" fits 550?
I'd go with 17 for the winter..

Nobody could see or feel the difference when you got something like that
