Yeah, its pretty bad this year, but that snow melted in 3 days. Which surprised the hell out of me. Colorado weather is too unpredictable.

we are getting 8-17 inches tonight of snow. Before the subframe thing I would have put four fronts with Blizzak LM-22 like I did on my last 02 330i. I am trying this year staggered - fronts Blizzak LM-22 , backs 245-40 91H m&S. I need to drive in the snow tommorow to take car of my sick mom, I got weight and hope it goes good. The 4 blizzaks in the last one did great.

I would like to see alot more pics like above of our cars in the snow in the morn.

show us your winter set up

What's your winter 2012/13 set up for rims and winter tires?

-post pics of your dirty cars...

I'm running some aftermarket 18s, made in japan light alloys and nokian hakkapeliitta 225/40 fr | 245/40 rr (stretched alot b/c 10" rear rims). I think they are better than blizzaks. When i used to drive my 330i with blizzaks i used to lose the rear way easier. I'm taking off in snow very normally with the m3 im surprised. About the same in the m3 but so far better..limited slip diff..? Variable M Differential Lock this is why.

one pic , will post more as it gets dirtier
