Winter Rims

Hello:
I have an 03 E39 530 Sprt with staggered 17" wheels. I'm thinking of driving it in the winter with "real" winter tires. Does anyone know a national retailer (not BMW lol) who sells rims to fit, reasonable price (about $100~ per) ?? (I'm in NB). I'd be fine with 16" non-staggered for winters.

Thanks

Just go with used BMW wheels in 16" or 17" non staggered. Any e39 wheel should work for a 530i. Or go to tire rack and have the set shipped up.

Yeah, I think I just might bite the bullet and go with a Tire rack wheel/tire combo. - a painted wheel is all I really need from winter (salt etc). I'm assuming they are familiar with BMW wheel offsets etc ??
Thanks

they know what will fit. But you might want to look around locally on craigslist or kijiji. I got a set of 17" factory wheels for $350.
