$350 for just the rims is a pretty good deal. If you go to a dealer and try to buy them new, they usually are around $500 per rim! A new aftermarket set will run you easily $600-800 for just the rims. On craigslist and ebay, you can usually find used rims plus snow tires for M3's in the $600-800 range. You have to act fast tho b/c used BMW tires/rims tend to move quickly. I think I paid $600 for mine last year, but they definitely had some wear. Even with tires half worn out, it was worth it b/c worn snow tires are still superior to new all-seasons b/c the rubber compound is much softer. I figure I can use these worn snow tires at least another 2-3 seasons and I already drove on them last season.
