Hello All,

I read in the last copy of BMW magazine that BMW are doing winter tyres for the first time in UK (last winter has scared us all!). They are a bit more expensive and people usually get a whole new set of alloys with the tyres on.

Does anyone know the best place to get these from. Is it not cheaper to buy a set from USA and import them over? Any info on winter tyres would be appreciated.

I realise that they are not just better on snow/ice but work in the dry and wet better from 7 degrees centigrade or lower (according to BMW magazine). They have more waste heat which warms them up in the cold so they are sticky and not brittle...I do find this kind of thing interesting!
