Question Anybody know where I can get these kind of rims?

I want to purchase this style of rim or similar for my E46 330CI...They would be for winter use only and have snow tires on them.
Anyone know where I can purchase these new with new winter tires?
Tired of almost killing myself every winter....
Dont care about the looks...Im more interested in how they function.

That looks like the spare doughnut wheel. You can pickup winter rims and tires from tirerack.com. I got mine which look like one of the OEM styles for $100 per rim. It'll probably be close to the same amount for a steel rim if cost was your concern.

Watch the forums. I see sets of M3 wheels go for around $300-$400 with tires. They could be your tasteful winter wheels. Just make sure you get 4 fronts if you don't have an M3.

Yea that's just a normal steelie you can get them almost anywhere, just make sure you get the right size wheel and bolt pattern, but that's common sense lol.

Look here, TireRack I don't know about the manufacturer, talk to the tirerack rep on the boards, but get something like this so it is easy to clean. Nothing worse then having to clean your wheels for a long time in freezing temps. And it looks like I was off by $12 per rim.

Another thing, make sure you go through the rep here. I don't know the details but somehow money is funneled back to the boards to help.
