Winter wheel set up ... What's on your M3 ???

I have a set of 8 x 18 (replica winter wheels Style 220M not bad) with Michelin X ICE ... the snow just arrived from Chicago ... special delivery from some members here I shall not mention .... anyway just took my babe for a spin and handling is fantastic, real surefooted.

Now some members recommended I add spacers. I checked with my friendly dealership and as I kew beforehand they do not recommend spacers. I could use some spacers in the back, then I just take my babe for a spin here and then so she does not think I've abandoned her Seriously my ///M does not get too much to do in the winter time our DD gets the first call.

Anyway I took a photo with my winter set up here it is ... I'll show you mine let's see yours

This being Friday the 13th and all you all be careful out there you hear

Doesn't snow more than 2 days each winter here, very rarely over 2 inches any given time.
So OEM 18's here. With Pirelli PZero Nero M&S all-seasons x3, 1 Yoko Advan S4 all-seasons.


The pirellis are no longer manufactured in M3 sizes anymore, they're great winter tires for mild climates.

You know you're balling tough when you use your ZCP wheels as winter beaters.

How do you mean, "balling tough using my ZCP wheels"?

My ZCP wheels are in the garage ... in the winter I have my 220M replica wheels on the car.

BTW ... back in the 60's, balling meant having sex, usually casual sex..(everybody sing!) "Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end..." .... besides much too cold in Canada to have sex in the winter in the car

I wasn't alive in the 60s, but I bet things were a bit different back then!

oh yes they were indeed different times back then; a 450 SL cost around $9,000- then I only made some $3000- a year ... so as far as cars are concerned and computers for that matter things have changed ...

for example I'm typing on this laptop here ... in the 60s the power this little MacBook Pro computer here would have taken the space of my house, thinking of our company computer with keypunch input

Great looking car btw very clean !

Best looking winter set!

My car won't even be built until March and I've already starting thinking about which winter wheels I'll get. I'm obsessed alright.

If I wanted a set of ZCP wheels, do you have a recommendation for a good place to get them? I'm guessing they would be too expensive at the dealer. Damn, I should have been faster on the trigger when Mark M put his up for sale!

EDIT: Oops, nevermind, I just read on your thread that those are your stock ZCP wheels.
