I love my Z4 2.5 2003! I drive it during summer, and I use another car
I just crashed my winter car, and I'm wondering if I should buy another
new small winter car, or go for the winter tires on the Z4... (I'd
rather the later for financial reasons mainly).
We have pretty decent winter here in upstate NY (Albany, USA), at least
4 months during the year, it easily goes down to 20 F, etc. I've a 25
mins ride to work everyday (same to come back), against traffic, on a
highway. I got caught once on black ice with the Z4 and my factory
tires (all season run-flat I guess), and it was not pretty, I really
thought I was going to crash it any second, even at low speed.
There is a recommended set of 4 Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50 at
Tirerack.com, and I've seen good things about it on this forum. And
also adding weight in the trunk, etc.
Do you have any experience about winter tires and the Z4?
Thanks a lot
