Fixed. Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25, Dunlop Winter Sport 3D and Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 are all pricier than the same-size Hakkepeliita--plus they're run-flats, as they should be for maximum winter safety of the trophy wife and kids. Then again, the F30 is still too new to be offered these options so it's understandable that you had to settle for what's available.

Hakkepeliitas are great tires but several others have caught up (to the studless version at least--studded Nokians are a whole 'nother kettle of horses). Not the aforementioned Blizzaks, though: The LM-25 is one of the worst, loudest, short-lived, greasy lumps ever to disgrace the name of "tyre." (Not that I have an opinion.)
