BMW X3 Tires Winter and Summer

I need to buy a set of winter tires for my X3. Please share your wisdom and experience... Thanks!


  • What size?, where do you live?
  • 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.

    Mine: 1995 318ti Club Sport / 2014 M235i / 1999 Wrangler / 1996 Speed Triple Challenge Cup Replica Wife's: 2016 i3 REX/2004 X3 2.5i Son's: 2009 328i

  • Can I change 235/40-19:255/40-19 staggered highperformance tires to 17 " allseason or winter there a problem with that

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

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

    Other than that... no problems..


    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • 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.
