Old skool M3 wheels on E90

Decided to pull these down from my loft today, been up there for about 5 years. Popped a rear one onto my motor for a look see....Might use as winter wheels instead of my 18's?? Or do you think too special for that? Looked a bit weird at first but then really grew on me.
What do you think?
Can't part with these wheels still Luv em....
Proper BMW as well.

They suit E36 but not E90 imo.. Doesn't work..

However, as winter wheels? who knows.

Fine for winter wheels as appearances aren't usually a top priority - not that these are ugly as with the staggered rims they do look good on E36s. I tend to agree they are too small to look really good at 17" on an E90. Many official BMW OEM winter wheel/tyre packages actually come with steel rims with, yes, good old fashioned wheel trims - so they would look better than that - hence fine for winter wheels. As they are staggered, you'd end up with more expensive (and wider) rear rubber - which is not really what you need for best snow performance (narrow=good).

Tis funny how cars change. Those rims used to look sooooo big on the E36 M3.
Dont think they suit the E90 at all.

Suprising that they actually fit an E90.
