Winter wheel options 330d M Sport Touring M Brakes

Can anyone give some good tyre and wheel options for 18" the min I believe with m brakes open to option and good place to look for a second hand pair that someone is changing to performace 20" for example

Hi Derek,

I have a F30 330d M Sport, with the M Sport brake options. I took off the 19' 403M and got the following winter wheels / tyres:

18" Calibre Rapide in Matt Black with Pirelli Sottozero II, run flats - 225, 45, 18"s all round - I have a couple of shots of them on the car in my pics.

One good thing about this particular alloy's is that it they a direct fit for the car and don't need spigot rings.

Car has done me proud over winter months and especially when it snowed!

A word of warning, these just fit over the M Sport brakes so don't risk 17's as they won't fit!

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Pops

Not sure if they are on wheel base as I didnt buy from there ad yes went with runflats.

I had to buy new wheel nuts, including locking nut as the taper on the standard nuts is different to what is needed for these rims. I had my wheels swapped by local alloy dealer specialist who had some that fit!
