Mein Auto: nothing at the moment
Help please, 16 v 17 inch winter setup

First let me say I did search but didn't find a lot of useful current information.

Need to get a set of winter tires & wheels for my new to me 2011 E90 328ix and have become mired in an internal debate over 205/55/16 vs 225/45/17 inch options. The 16s would in theory be the better choice since they are slightly narrower and taller and in the mountains of Western Pa our winters can be anywhere from pretty mild to wild and so that was the direction I was headed in with the new Xice3.

Then I was playing around on Tirerack and found some closeout 17 inch wheels I like that would make the 17 inch option cheaper with either the Xice2 or WS70s. Which has led me to get stuck in a 16 v 17 looping debate with myself. Anyone care to chime in?

Thanks

nik
