Mein Auto: e60 M5
Had e60 M5, the stock 19" wheels had Blizzaks for the winter (ran 20" Mod Society for summer). Winter tires made a huge difference especially compared to all season tires (which I ran at one point). As long as snow isn't too deep shouldn't have any issues. A few inches of snow and tires aren't the issue, it's the height of the car. There were plenty of times I passed front wheel drive cars going uphill with up to 2" of unplowed snow on the street confidently and safely. Just put Dunlop SP Winter Sport on my 2013 M5. Just had a dusting that put @ 1/2" on the street and the tires worked great. I would use the same 265/35-20 all the way around versus a staggered setup.
