Are you looking for hubcaps? Have you tried anywhere?

Walmart, auto parts stores, eBay....

As long as those BMW center caps are the correct size, they should work. 68 or 69 mm (I forget which).

Thanks-I've looked online with most feedback that center caps are made for alloys and weren't sure if their caps would cover up the vehicle's native hubs

As long as the diameter is the correct size and the detent tabs can clip into place, I would think they should work, albeit looking quite odd on the black steel wheel.

I think this is the part number for the steel wheel hubcap for the e46 3-series. It may work on the X3 steel wheels. But, they are quite pricey.

Part #: 36 13 1 179 141

Thx-the whole deal is odd but I will say, an X3 with snow tires is amazing in the snow
