Just changed the tyres from the BMW supplied 225/45 R 17s, to 225/50 R 17. (98 and V rated)
I was assured, when I ordered the BMW winter wheel and tyre set for my car 2 years ago, that the wheels and tyres would be the correct fitment. Therefore I didn't question that (!). [OK well you live and learn]
I had realised that the external diameter of the winter wheel/tyre was less than the diameter of my 19" summer wheel/tyre, and therefore the speedo would over-read a bit. Never having had dedicated winter wheels and tyres before I just assumed this was the way things were.

Last year I noticed the sticker said that Alpina specify 225/50 on a 17" wheel. After LONG negotiation with the BMW dealer who had supplied the original set, I eventually managed to persuade them that the correct tyre was a 50 section tyre, and yesterday I got Dunlop SP Wintersport 4D tyres fitted all round. Given that I had driven on the last set for two winters, we agreed they would halve the price of the new tyres. I have not tested them in really cold conditions yet, but immediately after fitting I needed to drive cross country to Northampton from Leamington, so got a good feel for how they perform on wet and muddy winter roads. Very impressed. These tyres are much quieter than the Goodyear winter tyres I had originally, and the ride is a little more comfortable, no doubt due to the greater sidewall depth. Grip seems very good. Importantly the speedo is more accurate now! I'll see how the Dunlops perform when it gets really cold and if we get some snow, but so far so good.
