i find it hard to believe that a set of blizzaks on a RWD bimmer (any model) is solid in the snow. bimmers (rwd) are notoriously bad in snow. ask folks who live in new england.

I have heard the exact opposite.

I have never driven my BMW in snow or with Blizzaks. I guess we'll wait and see....

I wrote about that today in another thread... http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...91&postcount=4

My E39 Touring with WS-50 Blizzaks was great this winter. I even live in New England.
