#21884 of 30250 Hmmm, winter tires, again...

Now that I have experience driving on snow with two BMWs and three types of tires, I will offer my "Subjective" analysis on how well they work on snow, on a scale of 1 to 10.
2002 530i - Michelin Pilot Primacy - 2 (Summer Tires)
1999 328i - Michelin MXV4 Energy Plus - 5 (All-Season Tires)
2002 530i - Michelin Arctic-Alpin - 10 (Winter Tires)
So, will all season tires work for the full 12 months? Ummm, sorta.

Have your buddy get a edmunds id and log on to keep us informed.

Well I think that accurately sums up the whole RWD winter tires vs. all-seaon tires debate quite succintly. Don't you think so also?

Good point, I hadn't thought about it that way.

2003 and already with 10k miles? Did your friend buy it brand new? Wonder if someone before her owned it and just drove it into the ground? Or it could just be a "lemon".
I recently bought a new 2002 330i and its perfect- no problems so far. [cross my fingers]!!

2003, 330i, PP, SP, Xenon, Auto for $41k + and you have to still buy floor mats !!! Talk about trying to milk the cow till the very last drop, sheez.

I haven't paid for floormats since 1990.

Have your friend get to Edmunds and give more details. These things are frustrating. I know someone who bought a Japanese car, it malfunctioned about a mile from the dealer after pickup. The owner "nearly" totaled the car (but was okay after the crash). No new car, insurance paid to fix it.
