Help a Brown Man Create a Cheap m6 + tire combo for his LCI e92

Allright so I'm really bored with my bland 194M rims so I think it's' time to upgrade the wheels. I need to find replica m6 rims and cheap yet reliable all season tires (preferably Runflat). Apparently the OEM m6 rims don't fit quite right. This car is leased so I don't want to do any fender rolling and what not.

I'm just a college student looking for a cheap yet sexC setup. Can anyone help me out?

Car is stock AW 335xi M e92

In college, there was something called a 8 finger and two thumb discount if you were very cheap.

The only thing you could do IMO Is search Craigslist and see If you can come across a killer wheel/tire combo deal, but you may still have to pay a little over 1k. Good luck

You can look into buying a used set, but even that would be hard to find with your budget.

lol I figured it would cost a lot but I was just looking for some kind of miracle. I'm not going to be working anytime soon as I have my MCATs approaching. I guess I'll just ride these 194's out till then.

Get involved with the local crowd and see if someone will trade you plus cash. You may find someone going back to stock.

OR, keep the stock wheels and use your money to buy spacers and springs. This route would probably look better.
