Just had a big snowstorm here in Denver and my X3 just handled it. We had 13"+ of snow with some slush near the ground. I'm quite pleased, especially when compared to the all-season runflats that were on it last year. I mentioned it earlier, but here's my setup.

Rial X10 17x7.5 et32 (OE fitment)
Bridgestone Blizzak WS-90 235/60/17 (Slightly taller and narrower than original 245/50/18)
New TPMS
New lug bolts
Entire package from tireack.com < $1500

It feels a bit more floaty in turns than my summer performance 18" non-runflat, but that extra cushion will come in handy dealing with potholes. If you don't see too many of those, I'd consider an 18x7.5 or 18x8 wheel with 235/50/18 tires for winter duty.
