Winter Tires/Rims pics

so i received my winter tires and rims that i ordered but have been a little lazy and slow in putting them on. i finally came around to putting them on today and they dont look too bad at all (my opinion). what's your opinion?

here are the 18" rims compared to the 19" factory rims.


here are the rims mounted on the X3. they're pretty revealing compared to the OEM


all of your compliments and criticism are welcome

Looks Great !!! Congratulations… Thanks for posting… Now some details please.
Where did you buy the rims, and did you buy the air pressure sensors for them too? Cost?
I use winter, but have just been using the same rims, but would like dedicated rims

Look nice. Those rims look a lot like the 17" 112 on non-sport models
I actually like when you can see those big brakes in the backround.

Price? Seller? TPMS installed?

Those look quite nice. I am finally going to pony up the $ for some real winter wheels this year.

I live in Germany and didn't feel like letting the local economy rape me, so I ordered the rims through DiscountTireDirect.com. With shipping, the rims and tires came out to just a little under $1600. That was including the TPMS, balancing, road balancing and wheel lug kit. They're performance winter tires, so when it's not snowing, I can still drive up to "my" normal speed on the autobahn

I didn't want to run the risk of having the 19" OEM rims being damaged during a tire swap, so I decided to go with the tire/wheel package. It is also going to be cheaper and more convinient in the long run. You will likely be able to save around $180 more than me, b/c I had to pay for shipping.

Fantastisch! Nicht zu teuer. I will have to give them a ring.
