Alpinweiß X1 - Winter Express

Vancouver usually enjoys (suffer depending how you look at it) a mild rainy winter. However the last few weeks Raincouver has been experiencing "Snowpocalyse" or "Icemageddon" as some folks call it. Over the Christmas/New Year holiday I took my daughter out to visit some of the local trails for a white forest experience.
I'm a big believer in winter tires. The '14 X1 Sportline with winter tires is wonderful. Confident inspiring and can be quite fun.

Wheels: BMW Style 138 17". ET20. Nicely flushed. Love the concave look.
Tires: Triangle Snow Lions 225/50/17. Had Blizzak WS80, Dunlop Winter Sport, Nordic Icetrack prior. Difficult to compare as they were all on different cars before. I would say the Blizzaks are the best (duh!) with the Snow Lion tying with the Dunlop for 2nd. Yup!

'nuff said, here are some photos.



Smurf view.


Here you can see the wheels' concavity. I'm running 33f/37r on the Snow Lions. Noticed front tirewall softness during aggressive roundabout engagements. Gonna go for 35 all around.






Ice from trees are falling down! Arrghh!!! Quick pic and we're outta here.

thanks. The X1 with winter tires is marvelous on the slippery stuff. I'm even enjoying the higher profile tires.
