zaks Whoa, just mind blowing. I've seen a few of these in Bangy too and they have great presence on the road. 31st July 2009
aah78 @sAP: I switched back to 18" wheels for winter - the only reason I bought Goodyears is because they were the cheapest of the lot. I'd have bought Nokian otherwise but no money left. The Continentals were (are) on 17" wheels and are RFT. The Goodyears aren't. 24th March 2009
sAP Abhinav; RWD cars need winter tires for good traction in snow and ice. Its easier to have 2 sets of rims to go with the different sets of tires to avoid remounting the tires on the same rims everytime the season changes.

Aah78, did you switch the Contiwintercontact with the Goodyear winters for a reason? (I use all season contiprocontact on my AWD. I have not had any issues so far in MN winter, but any gotchas?)
23rd March 2009
abhinav.gupta88 What difference does it make using different alloys for different seasons? Summer and winter 22nd March 2009

sujaylahiri Not the best looker in the market right now, but I must say that BMW represent the epitome of technology when it comes to road cars. I mean perfect weight distribution and just the right amount of traction you need with a rear wheel drive. And that inline-6 is built like a tank, no-nonsense engineering. 4th June 2008
aah78 Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, 2 different sets of alloy wheels - one for summer, one for winter. :) 4th June 2008
