Winter wheel/tire recomendation?

Have a 2013 550 Msport coming shortly and live in Colorado. Thinking of a 17" wheel set. What do you recomend?

Beware that the rotor size on 550i are larger therefore only certain 17" rims would fit. 18" would give you more flexibility on rim styles and fitment.

You are going to need 18s. I just picked up a set of 18x8" F10 M5 reps new for $550 shipped and will be running Pirelli Sotozero Snow tires with 245/45-18s all around
