ED Winter Tires Price List

It might have been posted already and I missed it.
But in case it wasn't posted, here's a "rate list" I got with my "ED Welcome" package for the Winter Tire rental:

Thanks!
I like the delivery to the US option for Eu 400 (ouch). At Eu 800-1000 more it will be worth it to buy them and keep them for use here. If nothing else you can sell them later for a little more.

Are the wheels the tire mounted on standard OEM wheels or less expensive "winter wheels"

They are all mounted on alloy rims. There is no mention of which style.

Here is how I might translate the translation:
wheel sentence = wheel set [urspr. Satz]

alufelge = alloy rims

return of quality x = our number grade for the condition you returned them in: 1 = excellent, 2 = very good, ..., 6 = fail(?)

profile = tread depth [urspr. Profil]

easy scratch = lightly scratched [urspr. leicht]

Here is a set of PDF showing the different kind of wheels available.
According to the the Polish PDF (pdf too big for forum), the E60M cars get M5/M6 Style 18" Double Spoke 184M Rims with Conti V rated tires for Eu 2100 delivered to the US.

BMWNA "provided" me a set of winter wheels and tires here in the US (not ED, long story), I was expecting the original oem Z4 M wheel style 224 and what came was a double spoke M style 164. After a long discussion with parts the 164 is a specific rim made for winter tires and the E85/86 M's. It is shown on the pdf provided by BayAreaBMWFan. The rental prices are understandable when taken in light of the cost of the wheels and tires they are providing.

The deal for the regular E60s is quite sweet. You get 4 run flats Winter Tires and 4 OEM rims for less than EU 1600. The RF Winter tires themselves run you about $300 installed!

Do these wheels, when purchased and shipped back to the USA have the sensors needed to make the tire monitors work? Anyone have any idea of how the shipping works? Can you leave the snows on and ship the regular tires? customs charges? delivered to dealer or your house?

I have been told by tire rack that 2007 models do have a sensor, not the old style using the anti-lock sensors.

If I'm taking delivery on 2/28, do you think I will need snow tires? Or since I'm on the tip of spring, the factory tires will be fine throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Netherlands? Thanks.

Depends on where in the countries you will be driving. I've been in Switzerland in late May when the passes were just being opened with 15 feet of snow on the side of the roads. In the low altitudes and on major highways you may be fine, but March in Europe can still be winter.

Thanks for the info. Still don't know if tire pressure monitors are included in the tire deal or if the car will even run correctly without them(monitors). Picking up 328xi coupe on Feb 16, driving to Cortina Italy for a week of skiing. Letter from ED department suggesting fines in Germany for having the wrong tires in the snow got me worried. Did get some cheap cable chains for the trunk, but will not use them unless roads are ice covered in the mountains. Standard xi tires are all season and should get me through most snow but missing my Friday drop off and the flight home would cause a big mess.

Call the European Delivery dept. or have your dealer call and ask. It's not a question of the tire pressure monitor (that comes with the car) but the sensors in the wheels.

Thanks for the advice. Maybe I'll head down to Spain instead... =)

When I picked up my 335i coupe in late december (week of 12/18-22) I opted to rent the tires; and although a bit expensive, I don't regret it at all. They provided a good measure of reassurance and confidence as we drove up to Garmish, Fussen and then over to Luzern.

The whole process was pretty painless even though I was probably the first person to take advantage of the program and they didn't have the process fully worked out. They managed to get the winter tires on fairly quickly that Monday morning after my ED and they were just as efficient when I returned Thursday evening to exchange them for my summer tires.

If I can figure out how to attach photos from my Mac Laptop to this thread, I'll post some pictures of my car in the tire service center.
