I'm a fairly new owner of a BMW and loving everything about it so far. As it is coming up to winter, I don't want to be the butt of everyones jokes about me getting stuck in the snow.
I have checked a few websites for replacing my current summer tyres for winter ones but seem to be struggling to find my choices for my rear size. My rear tyres are 245/35/18. I can only seem to find Pirelli's in this size and are also coming in at £340 each!! Change the size to 245/40/18 and the options are huge and the prices drop significantly to sub £100.
Has anyone tried changing the tyre size and will it make any difference? I understand there will be a percentage difference in speed.
The front size 225/40/18 are very reasonably priced so would keep these as they are.
Any suggestions or comments from people who have done this before would be greatly received.
