Do a search on winter wheels and you'll find it...i think it's a post on page 6. Something like 271M.

I just bought a set of these off another poster here.

They are sweet.

Style 270M, part of the winter package / wheel set in Europe (235/40 R18).


Best regards, south

Check with your local BMW Dealer. In Canada they are offered as part of the Winter Tire package. Just put mine on last week $4000 CDN with Michelin PA3. My understanding is inventory is a bit of a problem in Canada at the moment though.

Yeah I was quoted $3300 for that package here in the US, which is an utterly absurd amount for cast 18" wheels. Especially for winter wheels that are going to get all beat up.

They do look good though.

for that amount of money, why wouldn't you buy a set of OEM 18" rims for 1800 (or less, even WITH summer rubber already on them), and then put winter rubber on those? That way, you could beat up the summer tires, say, on the track, and then put winter rubber on them at the end of the summer, in preparation for the winter? Win-win.

From my dealer up here in Boston. The other issue I had is that they only come mounted with Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3s, which aren't too good in the snow. A great "winter performance" tire in that they preserve some amount of handling. But they lack snow and ice traction compared to other hi-perf tires like Hakka Rs, Wintersports, or Blizzak LM25s.
