Need Winter Wheels and Tires!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I am picking up my 335 gt next week and it is being delivered with the up graded 19'' wheels with Performance tires. In Germany you are required to have winter tires on your veh from October to April. So i want to know what aftermarket wheels and tires you would recommend?

Thanks!!

Anything wheel wise that fits the F30 will fit the F34, just need to upsize the tires by one aspect ratio. So instead of 225/45-18 or 215/45-18, get 215/50-18 or 225/50-18's

Aalders, been looking around myself, same situation as you. My first choice was to go to tirerack.com since they delivery to APOs but they don't have anything right now. Make sure you tell where ever you are buying that you have m sport brakes if you have them to get the right sized rims.

I am not sure if every wheel from F30 can be mount on F34 without additional parts....

You can try to serach for 18' 405M stylling http://vipfelgen.de/images/articles/...ff280841f9dd2e


I bought such 18' for a winter with Continental tires, price for the new one is around 580 EUR(tax included), already with tires.

The 405M wheels are sick. I was looking at trying to get 20s but the price is outrageous. did you buy yours online?

No, I ordered in BWM authorised parts-seller.


As far as I know it is a really new stylling and it is difficult to buy rims only, without tires....


But as you wrote - they look sick - much better than standard M 19' wheels that I have now.
