When I search separately for wheels however, it only lets you search by vehicle, which defaults to the 'normal' 18x8.5 and 18x9.5, but these are larger than the recommended sizes for snows.

How do I see what else is available in wheels for the M3 that fit the smaller snow tires?
The website is a little funny with how it handles the wheels for the M3. For winter, it only shows the Sport Edition A7, the most popular choice. You can get 8" all around, or 9" in the back. Either is acceptable.

Any of the other 18's that fit can be used, but you have to get to them for the normal wheel search. Check the tire specs for rim width range to make sure that your chosen tire will mount correctly on your chosen wheel.
