What Kind of Winter Wheels

I'm looking for winter wheels for my G11. What kind of wheels/tires are the members on this forum using? I want a reasonably priced 20" with proper off-set as I don't want the car to look funny (interested in aggressive look)!

Could you please share your set up wheels/tire sizes? If you can share pictures, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I bought the winter Wheel / Tire set up from my BMW dealer. Goodyear winter tires 20" rims. I believe I paid around $3,200. They are great in the snow!

What offsets should I use if I go with aftermarket 20" wheels to keep a flush look? Thanks

303m wheels off my F01 redrilled to fit new bolt pattern. Using pirelli Sotto Zero 3 staggered set-up. 245/40/20 and 285/35/20 tires. Went with non runflat and rides super smooth.

I went with Pirelli Sottozero 3. My second set. Also had them on my 5er. Love the tires. Lots of grip and great in the snow in NH.
