Not bad. These look better than those 705s, which come as a summer set.

question for you folks, i know the load index of the OEM 19" tire is a 105Y (front) and 107Y (rear).

is there any issue going to a 101W for a winter setup all around?

I understand that the maximum speed is lower ... i doubt i'll be hitting that in winter. But there is an 1100lb difference in load capacity. that said, I don't know if it is as simple as adding it all up at each tire.

for the square 101W it looks to be about 7300lb and for the 105Y/107Y it is 8400lb.

either way, it is far above the gross weight limit of the m5 at 5400lb.

You don't need more unless you are planning to pack and hauling a lot. Lol

For me I don't car for winter and have a very short drive. Sometimes I take mine two boys and that's all the weight.

Agreed, with Miko.
Don't forget always engineers with everything in life over estimate.
I myself do the same.
so that typically means all calculations are X 3.
