Is it safe to drive with performance tire with xdrive during the winter in the snowy NE? Should I just replace them with snow tires? And if yes, any recommendations for my 2010 328i sedan?

Thanks!

There are performance summer tires and performance winter tires. You want to have two sets of wheels made up: one set of each. Get the TPMS. Tire Rack is a great source. Xdrive is wonderful for the winter, but you've got to give it something to work with.

I'm guessing you mean the performance summer tires that come with the BMW sport package. They are not safe in weather below about 40 degrees F and are extremely dangerous on ice and in snow.

Thanks, Mike.

I searched 'snow tires' in E9X forum and got 998 hits in 0.22 seconds.

'winter tires' yielded 1000 hits in 0.28 seconds.

And I think tires is automatically highlighted to take you to Tire Rack
