I have never heard of this brand. The guy said they are the 9th largest tire manufacturer in thw world, the tires are V speed rated (better than the recommend H).

Without googling it, I thought Champiro was an Indonesian brand, not a Singaporean brand. Maybe ok for a cheap car but for a BMW X3, I'd stick with the best snow tires possible which might be Nokian Hakkapeliitta R, Michelin X-Ice Xi3, Continental ExtremeWinterContact, Bridgestone Blizzak WS70, etc. There are winter performance tires but I prefer to get the best snow traction possible for 3-4 months of the year rather than cut corners.
