I've decided to buy a "winter" car to keep my M3 from winter duty. As that's the case, I'm wondering if there's interest in my winter rim/snow tire package.

The wheels are AT Italia Type 5s (Contour replicas in 16") shod with Dunlop Wintersport M3 snow tires. I haven't checked but I think the snows are at approximately 50% tread depth, with no flat spots or other problems. The rims are in excellent shape. There are a few stone "nicks" here and there but no scratches, curb rash, or other damage.

Here are pictures, the last four of which were taken immediately after an ice storm. Yes...that's glare ice you're seeing:

I'd be interested but shipping will probably be too much...

I'll deflate the tires to save weight. :takecover

I run those tires on my S2000 on AP1 rims. They are very highly rated, although last winter here was so mild, that I didn;t have a lot of snow experience in them.

Overall, a very tasteful package Rood. This would be a good buy for a winter package on an E36 M3.

Have the same wheels for winter... they are great. Fairly heavy, so I'm sure they can take a curb hit or two...

Let me measure actual tread depths and take some pictures first. I want to make sure I'm giving you accurate product descriptions. :thumbsup:

If I ever get my Marquis sold, I might be interested in snagging those off you. How much and can I come pick up?

Ouch. Sorry to hear that. Talk about frustrating, too.

I just looked over the wheel/tire package and everything looks great. Again...a couple of stone hits on the front face of the wheel but they're hardly noticable; they almost look like little specks of dirt.

I still haven't measured the tread depth (I can't seem to locate my tread-depth gauge after moving) but there's plenty of tread left. Tires are clean, too, with no dry rot or other flaws (i.e., no slipped belts, flat spots, etc.)

It's a very clean package.
