Snow Tires for 2008 335i

New to the board! I recently purchased a 2008 335i. Unbelievable fun to drive. Do you recommend snow tires, even in the summer? I live in Minnesota, so snow tires in winter are a no brainer, but I've heard people suggest snow tires for this model at all times. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

They're probably referring to all-season M&S (mud & snow) rated tires or something like that. Very bad to run true snow tires in warm weather.

I can't imagine running snow tires in the Summer is ever a good idea. I'd go with snow tires in the winter and swap out to all seasons for the rest of the year. N4S

Thought: A choice subset of tire performance-ability, you'll stick like glue while not movin' fast at the same time!

Thought: For some reason, they call them Winter tires

Thought: For some reason, there are Summer tires
