Default M46 snow wheel options......

I'm looking for a square setup. Some 18" front wheels for mounting snow tires on a BMW E46 M3 Coupe.

I was surprised to not see any good options on Tire Rack. I thought there would be some Sport Edition or ASA wheel options, but didn't see any. There's a VOXX brand wheel that doesn't look too bad through Discount Tire that doesn't look terrible, but never seen an ///M.

Interested in something like below:


Most are 19 x 9 or larger.

Prefer to buy new, but could go for a clean used set. I even found refurbished OE fronts to be super expensive.

Show me what you guys are running for affordable winter rims!

Who cares what the wheels look like when you are driving in winter/snow? Its not a concours.

I just use the OEM 18s to rummage through the snow. I donít need to worry about having a square experience when itís sooooo easy to squeeze in throttle to overwhelm rear end winter tire grip. Itís so fun to oversteer in 2nd gear at such a low speed of 10mph. Far more easier than attempting that with Michelin Supersports.

i'm running michelin x-ice xi3 on staggered OEM 18s and they're pretty good. haven't had much of a winter here to test them, but they've gotten me through a snowy highway mountain overpass with no issues.
