Mein Auto: 2009 X5 35d
Running Vredestein Wintrac 235/60-18

I put these on a set of 210 wheels that came with my X5. Locally, Direct Tire and Auto carry Vredestein so I bought them and had them installed.

There was a big storm on Jan 21 2011. Memorable day for many reasons. I had to leave the house at 5:30AM for a long highway drive. I was ahead of the plows, and was at least 6 inches of cold churned up snow on the highway. Traction and handling were superb even at high speeds.

On dry roads at high speed, the car leans more going into corners when compared to the lower profile 19" summer tires, but really not bad.

I considered getting the Pirelli Scorpions but no regrets on the Vredesteins.
