I would much rather order just tires as opposed to wheels and tires.
I'm actually taking mine to the dealer tomorrow. Purchased some wheels, 19s, from modbargins and some winter tires from tirerack. Had the dealer order me the small spare and jack.

Because mine is xdrive, it came with all seasons, on 351s, but after a number of years here in Germany, I'm more comfortable with full winters. When my all seasons wear out, I plan on getting summers. Still undecided whether they'll be RFTs or non-RFTs. After driving non-RFTs this winter, hopefully I'll be able to decide.

Where are you in Germany?
