^ I tried those, too much rubbing.

Seriously though, It's a lot of rubber but they're great in the snow.

Hahah very funny, I didn't know we had comedians on the board. Alright guys, the tires are huge, I get it.

I just figured people would be interested to see an E46 on E60 wheels, as I was repeatedly told it's not possible.

Next time I post pics I'll make sure I'm slammed on rubber bands with a dope stance, yo.

I was honestly just asking what brand winter tires those are, since you said they were decent.

My winter car uses the same 205/55/16 tire size as my E46.

Haha sorry man, my bad...

Following those earlier comments I figured you were just being sarcastic.

The tires are: Pirelli Snow Sport 210 225/55/R16. They are truly great in the winter. Prior to installing them I was getting stuck in very small amounts of snow(Michelin Pilot A/S - good tread), with these Pirelli's installed, I haven't had any issues - even parking on snowy/icy hills.
