Exclamation Future wheels?

How do you like this set up? I have a 2011 2LT RS

I like that they are kind of like the stock wheels. Please help me out



"4 rims and snow tires (mounted and balanced). Rims: 17x8 Mille Miglia Spider II (bolt pattern: 5-120; offset: 40mm). Tires: 225/50VR17 Bridgestone Blizzak LM-22. 18mm spacers also included (if needed). Original purchase from TireRack.com in Dec 2003 (receipt available). Used for only 2 winter seasons on a 2004 BMW M3. Excellent condition - no tread ware or damage."



Here's what our wheels look like:

We have stock 5x120mm bolt pattern with 45 mm offset

They are asking $600 - is that too much for 2 seasons of use?

not sure they will get over your brakes, even though you have a V6.....if they do, you won't need any spacers.....what you have quoted in your post is incorrect as our wheels offset. The fronts are 35mm, the rears are 40mm. HOWEVER you could put a REAR on the front with no problem as I am running fronts all the way around, and since your SNOW TIRES/WHEELS are only 8" wide and have an offset of 40 mm.....they will fit with no problem. the REAL PROBLEM is if you use the tires you mentioned, the diameter is WAY TO SMALL.....to put a 225 on a 17" wheel...you need to get 65's not 50's if you put 225/50-17's on your wheel/tire combo will be 9.8% to short. and when your speedo indicates 60 mph, you will actually be running 54.1 mph
