Ha, ha - not surprised at all..Exactly how I felt with All Seasons on my X5d.

Put some of those Nokians on the X3 and then report back....Tires make all the difference in the world as I'm sure you know..

I suspect the Pirelli All Season Tires will be fine on cold, cleared streets and barely palatable when there is any significant amount of snow on the ground..

For me, I can live with that for now on this leased 28i - but in my next AWD I'm going back to separate summer sport vs winter fitments.

All Season Tires - the best @ nothing
