So I got these Z4 wheels...

Looking for opinions:
I got these Z4 wheels (style 105) at a great price and now I'm trying to decide what to do with them (A total 1st world problem that I do feel guilty about).

Anyway, I was going to use them as winter wheels on my 325xi, but they're in such good shape and probably a bit too wide for winter use. So, perhaps I should get some new winter rubber for the stock 16" rims and new summer rubber for the style 105s? What do you guys think? The stock 16" rims have nearly new Conti DWS's on them, so that seems like a waste to sell them, but then I'm assuming shops pay very little for nearly new tires.

FYI, the Style 105s are 17x8 with an offset of 46. I weighed them at 11.8kg each, which seems a little high but my scale probably isn't very accurate.

Yay touring! Anyway, my opinion is that the style 45 stock wheels are so ugly they have to go. I wouldn't even use mine for winter if I needed a winter set. Definitely use your new ones for summer. Sell the tires on Craigslist or to a fanatic.

Yup, sell tires to fund winter tires for the 16s. I'm running 195/60 Blizzak WS-60s on the same rims. Save over the winter to get 225/45s or 245/40s for the 17s.

In case anyone was curious, here's the outcome. I wrapped the Z4 rims with some un-used Continental DW summers off of CL. I'm currently on the hunt for some Style 73s for the winter set.
