Winter Tire dates?

Are there specific dates when car purchased ED will have winter tires?
1-- I mean after what date the factory places winter tires on the car? Such as starting October 15 through March 15?
2--If car picked up at the factory with winter tires, will the dealer change it back to summer tires at no cost to you when car arrives to the US--especially in the South or Southwest?

The car will come with whatever option you choose when ordering. There is not an option to order any car with winter tires.

If you desire winter tires for your trip you can contact edwintertires.com to rent a set from them. They can have them already installed at delivery or you can drive to their depot to have them installed.

Before you drop off your car you must make arrangements with them to re install your factory tires and wheels back on your car.

This is not dependent on the time of year you pick up your car.

It is your responsibility to equip your car with the proper tires during your time driving in Europe.

The current laws regarding this can be found here.

Just to be clear....

The factory do not place Winter tires on the car at any time. Winter tires are installed on your car on a temporary basis, if rented by you, either at BMW Welt on the day you take delivery of your car there or at the ED Winter tires depot in Ismaning (NE Munich) after you have your car.

The Winter tires, if rented, are only installed on your car during the time it is in Europe. When your car is dropped off to be shipped back to the USA, your originals (stored at the tire depot) must first be re-mounted and the Winter tires returned to the tire depot.
