Looking for winter tires for your F30? Tirerack tests the best on a F30 328i



Tirerack uses the F30 328i to test the best winter tires for snow and ice. If you've been thinking about a set of snow tires for your new F30 look no further. The tires tested on the 2012 3 series include:

Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 (Studless Ice & Snow 215/60R16 95T)
  • What We Liked: Excellent ice traction and a comfortable ride
  • What We'd Improve: Clear road handling
  • Conclusion: Still an excellent option for when winter weather is at its worst
Continental ExtremeWinterContact (Studless Ice & Snow 215/60R16 99T)
  • What We Liked: Good road manners and very good ice grip
  • What We'd Improve: Ice cornering traction
  • Conclusion: A very capable winter tire that you can live with every day
Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT (Studless Ice & Snow 215/60R16 95T)
  • What We Liked: Responsive steering
  • What We'd Improve: Soften the ride, reduce tread noise and increase ice traction
  • Conclusion: Delivers better winter traction than the best all-season tires can
Michelin X-Ice Xi3 (Studless Ice & Snow 215/60R16 99H)
  • What We Liked: Excellent ice traction and good clear road handling
  • What We'd Improve: Ice cornering traction
  • Conclusion: A new Studless Ice & Snow tire that challenges for best in class
