Winter Wheels for Canadians

Just picked up 17" winter wheels from Costco for my M-Sport X3.

M3 replica wheels. I plan to add M stickers and use my OEM centre caps.

Hopefully they'll look good. Waiting for Pyspeed TPMS delivery and then will mount tires.

Canadian version shouldn't need the TPMS sensor.. as I put on my winter wheels and do not require that.

BTW nice rims, how much did you get it for and from which costco, if you don't mind be to ask..

Yes they're Macpek wheels. $116.99 each at Costco. Ordered in from my local NB Costco. they Should be available at any via order. Not sure of quality, but like Costco return policy if I have a problem.

I have a US import X3, so TPMS is required.

Oh, no wonder you will need the TPMS.. I m at Ottawa, and costco don't sell alloy wheels.. careful with the front caliper after I installed the wheels and notice the front wheels are quite close to the caliper, I would say only about 2-3mm left..

post on some pictures after.. the wheels are quite nice..

Actually I puchased mine at Toronto last month, as they are better price..I was thinking to go with costco, cause the road hazzard policy. but they don't carry the wheels. So I went to one of the shop at T.O. and bought a set of 17" replica wheels and pirelli tires..

But I think I should get 18" instead casue mine is M package 17" seems a bit small..

I have the 18" version of these rims + 245/65/R18 run flat tires.

They are available in montreal, near the PET airport.

Hi guys,

Just joined the site, this is my first post.

I just bought the same M3 replica wheels (18") for my 2012 335i. Mine are actually the Macpek ones (very similar to c3uo's wheels in the pic above) that you can see at this link:

http://winter-tires.pmctire.com/enw/...-35-72-92.tire

I'm still waiting to get these installed but I'm curious if the OEM center caps on my 335i will fit on these rims? I'm also thinking of buying some generic BMW center caps to use on these wheels.

The OEM BMW Centrecaps fit from my X3. Sorry I have no pictures on the X3 with tires, but here's a picture prior to getting the tires mounted:

This begs the question....
How are you getting to the tyre center, in that condition.
