    Thanks, Mark. My tire size is 235/55 R17H. My dealer recommended Dunlop SP Winter Sport; I checked reviews and they seem to be positive. I live near Toronto. Cheers, Peter

    I used Tirerack and came to the conclusion that the Dunlops would be a good choice.

    Which one is a good car in winter - A4 quattro or X3 ? I live in NE ohio.
    I am surprised to hear that even X3 needs winter tires with all that AWD/dsc etc ...

    Hi, did you buy winter tires and are you happy with them? What did you get. I have the same issue with my X3.

    I live in the lower Ohio Valley, which means I deal with ice and snow on a somewhat infrequent basis. I fitted Pirelli PZero Nero M+S all-seasons to my wife's X3 and I have absolutely no complaints. After 30,000 miles they are still quiet and have @15,000 miles worth of tread left. I've driven the truck through over 15" of snow-and mud-with no drama whatsoever. That said, if you have to deal with winter weather on a constant basis I would advise going with a dedicated set of winter wheels and tires.

    You'll need 235/55-17 tires...

    also, you'll need 17" wheels....

    Other than that... no problems..

    I purchased the P nero zero - I live in Chicago and the last three years we have had more than our share of snow. I am totally pleased with the performance and decided not to buy a winter set of tires.
