Doesn't look to bad but the handling suffers. Can't wait till spring...

Do you get much snow around your way? How cold is the coldest?

Some years are mild but we can get winters with heavy snow fall also.

Wow, those A7s look pretty good actually. That is what I got too, but haven't mounted yet. Now I'm pretty stoked!

I just put a similar set up on my e90. I went with Bridgstone Blizzaks and the staggered wheels. Looks good man, enjoy the snow!

That looks great. I've driven on the dunlop 3D for a week now and they handle better than what I 1st thought in dry weather, no snow yet so that will have to wait.

The staggered look in the back looks better.

Very nice. Those are definitely one of the better-looking winter wheels I've seen. They suit the M3 well and look like an OEM design. I bet they'd look even better painted satin black for an AW M3.

Did the center caps from your OEM wheels fit, or did you get those separately? Just ordered the staggered setup for my E90 M3...

Thanks,

Looks acceptable. I just went with the same non-staggered setup, Dunlop SP Wintersport 3D's, TPMS, and center caps. Will post pix when I bolt them on.
