Our local dealer puts those on all their MINIs. I opted for 195/55/16 after much deliberation. we get much less snow than where the dealer is - mainly ice and dry pavement. So far I have been really pleased, but haven't had any heavy snow to try, but lots of glare and black ice. I got the Michelin X-Ice tires. Feel great to me - and WAY quieter than my runflats. Couldn't walk up my driveway for the ice, but Lucy zipped right up. In the middle of a blizzard now, so the true test will come.
