X2 M35i 20" Tire Question

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just curious what tires comes on the 20's from the factory? I'm assuming they are worthless in the winter? I'm considering trading my X1 in for the X2 M35i. It just has to make sense. Thanks guys!

I have 228xi with 20s. It came with Summer Pirelli P Zeros.

I'm curious if it's a must to have winter tires. Thanks

Id assume it's all dealer specific.. it would be easier for you to call/go to your dealer. They put all season pirelli's on all the cars here. I believe mine were cintauro's? Good enough for my first winter, but here in new england I always get dedicated winters eventually.

Must have is all up to you... I know plenty of people who think all season's are good enough.

My 2.8 came with Pirelli P-Zero RFT. They are absolutely not winter tires.

The 20's come with Pirelli Nero performance tires in a unique size runflat. There is actually no other tire on the market as an exact size replacement. They are useless in cold and snow. You'd best be buying an extra set of 19" rims and higher-profile tires.

One possible advantage of ordering the 20's is that you get a 155mph top speed due to the tire rating. The 19's factory-limit you to 130. If that's a concern.

Just as an aside, I acquired an M35i with 20's on last week and it came with Goodyear F1 run flats which are...not very good.

So there are now two 225/40/R20 options and...yeah.

I put 255/35/20 Michelin All Seasons on mine and it handles the winter weather like a champ.

Same...225/40 R20. Not only are they not on the 'Rack, they're not even on the Goodyear website in that size. I feel like a frickin' Unicorn.

I'm tempted to keep them on for a bit just to review them.

Pilot Sport A/S 3. They are awesome man. Never have any traction issues.

That's good news, this is probably the route I'll take, and put the Goodyears in storage. Thanks again for your input!

That's unfortunate that they limit the car with the non 20" wheel option. That being said, this car does not inspire confidence at 130 so it's probably better that way lol
