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.)


Might be where you live but for me the Nokian's aren't easy to find, special order for the most part, and only from one authorized dealer.

I don't need run-flats as I'll just hit the magic BMW Assist button and they'll have a solution to get me going in a few minutes.
