    So took the 320ed out this morning in 6” of snow on crossclimate tyres. Absolutely amazing good grip for driving & braking would highly recommend if you need to replace your tyres. Unfortunately only available in normal rubber tho.

    Interesting to know, I was in 2 minds when I replaced 2 of my michelin alpin winters. A lot of stories of all seasons being a jack of all trades but obv as a Michelin should be good, wasn’t many real reviews on them so I ruled them out then decided between the latest mich alpins or the well rated conti TS860. I thought I’d try the conti’s and it was a mistake, they were terrible on the rear of the E92, felt like a suspension arm was hanging off, don’t feel as bad on the front so have kept them. Should have stuck with Michelin.

    Good to know - I almost considered a set to run year round, but opted to go winter and summer specific in the end and Change the sets as normal. Might take a different view on it next year when I don't have a house in which to store two sets of wheels & tyres.

    Exactly the reason for my choice although I do now have a spare set of wheels & tyres in the shed :rolleyes: At £100 for a full set delivered from ebay it was difficult to say no, originally only wanted a spare for the boot but single's were £60. The cross climate give you excellent braking in the wet so you get good all year use. I am on 16" so a full set fitted was under £400 :D
