Gary (and others),
I have a 2012 335i (Luxury) with the staggered 19" setup (fronts: 225/40/R19, rear: 255,35,R19). I need a set of dedicated snow tires
, and it looks like my choices are limited in that size. I see the Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II Run Flats available, and that appears to be my only run flat choice. I bought a pair of Bridgestone
Blizzaks from you for my 530i and liked them. They weren't the quietest tires
, but they gripped well in the snow. They show as a choice for me as well.
So a couple of questions.
1. Do you recommend the Pirellis?
2. My dealer said that my car's suspension is "tuned for run flats" (whatever that means) and that I should stay with them. Is this bogus, or should I follow his advice?
recommends 225/40/R19 Pirelli's on all four wheels, but lists the staggered setup as alternate choices. Is there some particular reason to avoid the staggered sizes on the winter tires
Thanks and cheers.
