Snow tires needed on a 330xi???

I recently bought my 01 330xi. It has OEM tires (though not the original tires of course).

I'm wondering whether these tires are sufficient for driving in snow given the car is AWD, or whether I should still buy a set of good snow tires?

By the way, I live in New England if that makes a difference.

If your OE tires are summer-only you'll need all season or snow tires. Which brand and model of tire do you have?

If the car came with all seasons, you could get through some light snow with them driving slowly and carefully. Either way, good snow tires combined with AWD can turn your car into a vehicle that is actually fun to drive in the snow.
