F36 4GC 428i xDrive M Sport + winter mode







17" Sport Edition SE-16 Gunmetal w/ 225/50R17 WinterSport 4D installed. 18s would look better, but Michigan has some of the worst roads in the country, so 17s made more sense. Hopefully this helps other 4GC owners looking for winter options. Very few aftermarket wheels on these yet.

Old car: 2009 M3 Convertible 6MT

Those are some big tires. F3x platform needs at least 18" wheels IMO

Nice, very functional. I've heard nightmarish stories of some of the road conditions out in MI

The M3 on 18s blew an EDC shock and ruined 2 rims on one particularly nasty one. As the state hasn't done anything about the roads, this winter is going to be that much worse. Hence the post-apocalyptic setup. At least it will ride like an S-class.

These are what we deal with:

Nice 4GC and winter setup @TurboSpecC.

I can attest - overall road conditions are poor in MI. Hopefully lawmakers can devise and settle on sustainable long-term solution to fund road maintenance.

Was the all-season tires not enough for this x-drive?
