got s m sport 2014 x1

hello:

I traded in my 2004 325it for 2014 x1 m sport with 27k miles.
This is the first time I will have lo profile tires. I am concerned about them especially winters in maine. I looked at tire rack and the recommend getting the 17 in wheels and snow tire set instead of the 18 in.

I have another concern about lo profile tires. I am worries boston's pot holes will beat the crap out of them and i may even loose the wheels. (i have bad experience from 1980'w vw gti)

any opinions and suggestions

thanx

If you have all season rubber, you should be fine for mild winters.
The 17's will help for handling rough roads but it really depends on
how bad they are.
