I'm getting our winter tires put on today. Temps are between 40-50F now so that's when I make the switch. Also, Michelin has their $70 rebate on now and winter tire rebates are $50 per set. Michelin Xice3 for the X1 and Pilot Alpin PA4 for the M3. I'm getting $240 in rebates between the two sets!

I've been very impressed with the Dunlop Winter Sport 3D... (haven't tried the new 4D).

I am hoping to pickup a used set of Michelin Pilot alpins soon. Does anyone know if OEM E60 M wheels will fit the X1? Style 184, 8JX18 ET:20. Tire is 245/45 R18.

The 17" Rials fit my M Sport without issue. I have only driven several hundred yards with them mounted, but I should get an opportunity to feel them out later this week.

For people who swap their own tire, do you guys happen to know the Torque Setting for the bolt? It would be great if you can share the number.

When I asked the Tire Rack that question, they instructed me to torque to 88 ft-lbs.

I believe X1 fitment is identical to the E9x fitment.. so plenty of choices for wheels and tires as well.

Salerno is nice, and it appears to have a slightly better mfg process than the MSW, if I'm reading it right. HottRodW, did the 17x8 size of the Salerno cause no issues with clearance? Are you still using a 225/50R17 tire?

I'm also liking the look of the double-spoke Rial Como. Has anyone used the Como on an X1? Specs are fairly close to the MSW 22, which we know fits without issue: Como has 35mm offset, MSW has 34mm; both are 17x7.5; but the Rial is 5.55" backspacing, while the MSW is 5.62"

Yes, I am using 225/50/17's on the Salernos. There are no clearance issues. Quality of the Rials is very good. I also liked the Comos, but preferred simple spoke design of the Salerno for winter. The 8" width appealed to me, too. I did debate the color for some time, however, finally settling on silver over anthracite in the interest of hiding the inevitable salt residue. I still think the anthracite would have looked very good.

have you had a chance to drive the PA2s in snow/ice yet, how do they handle? I was going to go with the Blizzak LM25-1, but they're out of stock until Jan

Yes I went to Chicoutimi last week and drove in a snow storm without any problem. I do have sport package and have 18" wheels. Did not see big difference in handling on higway on dry surface... Very glad with my choice for now...

great, thank you! Ordered a set of the Alpin PA2 from tirerack with Rial Como tires, hopefully they'll handle Tahoe driving equally well!

Will 18x8 38mm offset wheels fit?

I've got a line on some Blizzak tires on replica M Sport wheels on craigslist, but I'm unsure of if 18x8 38mm offset wheels will fit. I kind of understand offset, but am unsure of how the wheel thickness offsets it.

I have a 2013 x35i M Sport with 19 inch wheels, if that makes a difference. Thanks!
