Unhappy Hit a curb today .. where can I get M3 rims cheap?

So this morning I was driving to work (Still had the Blizzacks on) so traffic is comming so I give it a little gas to make the left and next thing I know im in a drift and then drifted the other way after correcting and boom .. up the curb.

So I have a damaged rim (changing to summer tires now since I have no grip on pavement with blizzacks) Does anyone know where I can repair or pick up cheap M3 17" rims. Its for my E46 330XI.

Yo Blades, Skywheels 101, 416-898-8799 and ask for Ricky, Specialize in rims and tires for Bimmer and MB. Tell him Alex refer you and he'll give you a much better deal.

we had snow here for a week... i walked, i couldnt dare drive.
In the first day of the heavy snowfall we had 5000 accidents.. IN ONE DAY in Vancouver.
I didnt dare drive cause, i was so afraid if being hit and besides i had summer tires on.
Good luck, I know your rims can be fixed, you dont necesarrily have to buy new ones..

Was this on dry? Overcorrection = normal for people who don't slide a lot.

Umm E46 M3 never came with 17" rims, and M3 rims don't fit a 330 anyway because of the rear offset

M style, not M3 rims. M3 rims have a different offset in the rear, and will not fit a 330. You could run 4 front rims though.
