I bought them second hand. I've found them new at TireRack for $99 each and eBay for $95. I picked them up, with like new winter tires for $320.

BMW says not to use them as a street wheel - bc of poor brake ventilation. I think for driving in the US you should be fine though.
That's the plan here too. Easy to replace winter setup and one thrown in the trunk for a spare during summer road trips. With only using them during winter, I'm not too concernced with brake cooling since there won't be much spirited driving.

I'll be sure to post pictures when I get them thrown on.
