Wheel Setup

My 325 with sport arrives in 8 weeks. I am happy with the 17" 161"s because they are a nice tradeoff between size and ride comfort. I think they fill ou the wheel well nicely. What would you guys do for a winter setup? 17's again? What wheels do you recommend. I know nothing about after marjet or replica wheels...please educate me. I have heard a lot about M3 replicas? please explain!!

Before anyone shits on me, I did not post in Wheeles and tires because that area is a mess. I tried to do reserch there but again...mess. I searched...nothing relevant. I find this to be a great site with a lot of detail, but lacking in basic info when needed.

If your car can accept 16" wheels, get those for winter. My car cannot; brakes are too big.

I have Bridgestone LM-22 Runflat Blizzaks and they are awesome.

You can get the Styling 159 16" wheels for winter - again, if your car can take them (and I think it can, since 16" are stock on the car).

I have the same car. I got the Dunlop Winter Sport M3 DSST (run flats) and the Sport Edition E2 wheels (wheel and tire package) from the Tire Rack. I've had these on all winter and they're great. Good dry and wet/snow traction. Winter's pretty much over though...

I put 16" LM-25 as the winter tires. But the rear tires look too inside the car. Does anyone have any recommend spacer size?
