What do you think of this winter wheel setup?

Living in the midwestern tundra I need an effective wheel tire package to keep moving through 4-5 months of winter. Would this craigslist package fit my 04 325ci? Are the rims of good quality? Any comments on the Dunlop tires?

For winter tires, smaller and narrower are better.

Look for 16-in wheels, OE size tire = 205/55 (BTW the ONLY size on which chains will fit)

Dunlop is Goodyear's "B" brand and are always pretty low priced.

Other "B" brands?

BF Goodrich for Michelin
Firestone for Bridgestone

Naperville? You want to stop by Schaumburg and buy my winter setup? I am selling it because I won't have space in my new place to store them.

OEM Style 73 wheels (17x7) with Hankook Ice Bears (205/50R17). Wheels shows their age and have curb rash, but they are straight and true. Had them on this past winter. Lots of tread left.

Will sell $400 picked up. You are more than welcome to inspect before buying.



That said, those ASA are quality wheels. My dad had them for his winter setup using Blizzaks.

Wheel specs seem to be perfectly fine.
