Winter tire

Hi all, recently got back into a BMW with a 19 M5, and have had a heck of time trying to find a winter tire set up. My car has the 19s. I would love to hear what others are using to traverse the snow and ice. Thanks!

Winter tire

Youíre early. The car really hasnít been out for a winter yet. Tires and wheels should start showing up this month on TireRack or Iím sure your dealer will have something. Otherwise it is the usual choice of finding an aftermarket setup you like. For my M3 i had Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 which is a very good all season. I didnít intend to drive in snow but I figured it was good to have cold traction and just in case I got caught out in snow, have a passable tire. If youíre going to daily it, and you are in a snowy climate, probably want dedicated winter tires.

For my M5 I donít plan to buy a winter setup, will just leave it parked. Maybe reconsider after the first winter.

Thanks for the info. Where I am at it can get pretty cold and try and get my tires on in October. I hate to park an AWD car during winter as the pick up gets old quick. I dr0ve my GTR although PNW winters and it did great, I suspect the M5 will be equally adroit.

BMW OEM vs Tire Rack

So got a quote for the BMW OEM set up:

705M Style Wheels 19x9.5 F / 19x10.5 R
Michelin Aplin 5 Tires 265/40/19 102V F / 285/40/19 107 V
OEM Tire Pressure Sensors
OEM Center Cap

$3,664 - plus sales tax.

Seems a bit steep - but would welcome other M5 drivers insight into this.

TR isn't posting anything yet, but they do have a set up for my wife's '17 430i that's about $1,700 vs $2,300 quote from the dealer

Seems reasonable, are they 550 wheels?
