Initial Review, 500 Miles on Tires
I recently traded a '10 335i xDrive for an '11 328i Touring (M-sport, 6MT), and needed a winter tire/wheel combo. I have the Dunlop Winter Sport 3Ds on a Saab 9-5 Aero wagon and have put 5k miles on them, the 3Ds are a fantastic compromise between dry handling and winter traction. I live in Seattle, where the temperatures at sea level don't really dictate the need for winter tires, but the surrounding mountainous terrain is usually snow-covered for most of the winter - having winter tires on my vehicles means I don't have to think about going to the mountains, it's also nice to have the security of having winter tires fitted in case the temps drop at home. On the Saab the 3Ds are brilliant, very good traction on cold and snow, better than my 335i xDrive with all-seasons - even on hills.
