What about Nokian winter tyres?

In my country, the weather will be bad soon so I have to change my tyres.

Local BMW dealers do not offer yet any solution so I have to buy my tyres online.
The only option available immediate (2x255 + 2x265 40 R21, same brand, same profile) are Nokian WR SUV 4.

What do you think? Are ok for X4M considering that we have a lot of snow during the winter?

Nokian makes really good winter tires. I believe the WR line are all-weather tires tho.

If you get a lot of snow you are better off with the hakkapeliitta line as it's a winter tire

I've not had any experience with Nokian tires, but the Hakkapeliittas are supposed to be God mode on snow, and considered an 'arctic' tire. If you have snow on the ground for the entire season, every review I've read said they are the one to get. Should be fairly easy to find, though kinda expensive.

If you have boughts of dry/snow/ice/dry, there are better options, like Blizzaks or I've enjoyed some of Michelin tires for mixed winter driving.

Hakka R3 or Hakka 9's for your X3M I run Nokian Hakkapelitta's on all the cars in my signature; including the 508 HP RWD Bullitt.
