$2500/less want to buy now to save$...VanessaM3
06-27-2003, 03:11 PM
Anyone with suggestions--and photos if available-- for a set of 4 wheels with snow tires for $2500 or less? I want to take advantage of possibly lower off-season prices or, at the very least, not have to worry about inventory backorder/shortages for specific sizes in October-November.

I have a 2003.5 Silver Gray M3 cabrio. The car will be driven in northern Ohio, some ice but mostly snow. My understanding is that I'll have to settle for 17's (as I haven't come across any ads with 18 snow tires). Style wise, I like the rivets-around-the-perimeter look that I've seen on a lot of aftermarket wheels, just want to save time & find out which would be available with the correct sizes/offsets to look good on the E46 M3.

thanks for any responses

They are cheap (always) on and arne't too bad looking.

Around $219-230 per wheel + tires is about $1600-1700 w/Dunlop winter sport M2's.

Will try to post pics when I get home if I can find them. Don't remember cost but pretty sure it was under $2k.

I'm in the same boat.

I have a set of OEM 18" with no wear on the Pilots they came with. I have a set of Hamman 19" for summer use.

I was looking to put 18" winter tires on for the winter months.

Are there Blizzaks available in the OEM 18" size?

BBS RX 17x8 & 17x9, Blizzak MZ-01 225/50/17 & 245/45/17. $1800 total from Tire Rack. Don't think they make the MZ-01's anymore. Wouldn't get them again anyway...amazing on the snow but pretty awful on dry or wet roads.
