I'm looking to get the X5M some winter tyres.

I had Yokohama W.Drive Tyres on the E53 and they were excellent. Was looking at the same for the X5M but want to keep the staggered 21" set up because I didn't get an X5M to then make it look like an SE for 4-5 months of the year! Is my only option in this case to get the pricey Pirelli's?

Numerous German sellers offer ready built up 20" winter sets part worn usually. Some with approved *rated Pirelli others with various tyre brands. It all comes down to you and your belief in BMWs edict of only * rated tyres are recommended.
My summary is 285 40 20 *Pirelli Winter on a staggered set approximates BMWs specification for the F15. That was my plan until my wheel deal went boobies up.

Hi try willtheyfit.co.uk as the F15 wheels are wider on the rear putting them on may effect ride height and slight speedo difference !

F15 M models have 10 x 20 fronts and 10.5 x 20 rears for winter with 285 40 20 "Pirelli Winter" spec all round. Iirc they're 3-4mm taller than 275/315s, so not a problem.
