I was running summer tires, Michelin Primacy 19's, and they wouldn't move the car in 1 inch of snow on flat ground. So I went straight to the 4 Blizzack's on a set of 18 in rims based on recommendations here on Bimmerfest. I don't mind switching the wheels over since in the spring I like the look of the 19's so much more than the 18's. Very satisfied

Snow of any depth make it seem like driving with hard, plastic tires. The scariest part is when you can actually move and find yourself in a skid...
