Mein Auto: 2011 X3 35i
I did read that the 35i has bigger brakes and the smallest you should go would be an 18" tire. In all the 35i pictures I've seen, I don't recall seeing anyone that switched down to 17's. Why don't you call the dealer service department to see what they say for a second opinion? I ran my 19" 309's last winter and they did great, but it wasn't a typical winter in Michigan. We only got 70" of snow where normally we get 125+" of snow.
