Mein Auto: 2013 X3 35i M Sport
Best wheel/tire combo for 2013 X3 35i Msport

Hi All,
I live in Minnesota soon to be the land of 10,000 frozen lakes and could use some wheel/tire buying advice from Gary and fellow X3 owners who can speak from 1st hand experience. Thinking I'll go the tire rack route since the dealership just quoted me $3500 for some winter wheels and tires.

MY Max budget is $1500-$2000.

My top priorities are handling and emergency braking in frozen, wet, icy road conditions. Good snow traction a plus so long as it doesn't come at the expense of a smooth relatively quit ride. Thinking 18 inch wheels that can handle MN potholes is essential. Does anything come to mind good or bad from personal experience?

Thanks for sharing!
