winter tire help

I currently have bridgestone blizzak LM-32 on my car and unfortunately one was punctured with a nail in the sidewall- no repair. With that said, there's no more LM-32, the shop ordered LM001 but it runs wide and sticks out more than the LM-32 on the other side. There is an option for LM-25.

Not sure which tire bridgestone use to directly replace the LM-32, any help would be appreciated.

TIA

Check tire rack they have tons of lm-32 tires left. I was gonna say replace both but since mileage is low I'd avoid it. I personally wouldn't run different tires on either side of the vehicle but running different tires front and back especially in the winter is ok. You don't want different thread patterns especially in the snow side to side. So my view is see if you can get exactly the same tire from a retailer and if not swap both on the same axle and sell the good one on here or keep it as spare.

I'm on board with everything you're saying. I checked tire rack and other websites, no luck on the 255/35/19.

Not sure if I should proceed with LM001 or LM25

I think LM25 are runflat only, dont quote me! I would never run runflats if I had a choice, had them once on a E-class the feel of runflats is horrible beyond words.
