2015 F20 LCI 118i M Sport Winter Tires

Hi all,

I 've got style 383 M rims with 225/45/17 & 245/40/17 summer tires on the car.

Which winter tires and rims should I put on?

Should I use the 383 M rims or buy another set?

Any suggestions?

thanks

Our 2016 118i M-Sport was equipped with style 381 and 225/45/17 Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2 runflat tyres front and rear for winter use. They are easy to clean, and the tyres get decent reviews. I haven't really had the chance to test them in very slippery conditions yet, but they are comfortable to drive on now, before the winter really kicks in.

Where did you get the rims? Cost? Rims are the same all around?

It was included in a package deal when I bought the car new, so I don't know the real cost. All four wheels are the same size.

So do I.

It depends on the weather conditions you aim (is there any winter in Greece at all? ) and your preference.

It's up to you: another set will cost. So will seasonal change at a tire workshop. You should choose a complete wheel set if you can store it, ready to DIY and ready for the cost (including getting rid of unless reusable with your next car). Otherwise consider tire storage/change prices to decide (a whole set is faster/cheaper to swap but more expensive to store).

I bought my OEM winter wheel set at a BMW dealer's spring sale off (one week after placing an order for the car).

Relatively attractive.

Yes they are. You can choose here and query a dealer for the quote. Here are the part numbers for "turbine styling 381" already mentioned (I have those too with Nokian Hakkapeliitta R but they are cold winter tires incidentally.).

Thanks. I see style 381 are the only ones they fit and they clear M sport brakes.

I will check with UK dealers for a deal. Greek dealers probably will be too expensive.

I need winter tires for European trips during the winter.

I have the same setup as 1SolidF20 383 wheels with summer tyres 225/45/R17 front and 245/40/R17 rear. I want to put on runflat winter tyres - can I go with 225/45/R17 tyres on the rear? I think the rims are 7.5Jx17 front and 8Jx17 rear. Any issues with the winter tyre being narrower on the rear rim?
Any suggestions on the tyres - I have a choice of Michelin Alpin 5 ZP, Conti WinterContact 830P SSR and Dunlop WinterSport 4D ROF, all same price. Any opinions will be helpful.
