YuP! Me too. 7jX17's with 205/50R17's all around - run flats btw.

BMW Zentrum have a winter tire kit... four alloy wheels, tires and TPMS for about 1,300 euros without the 19% Germa sales tax. That is what I did. It was only a couple hundred more going with BMW wheels (#141 V-spoke) vs tire rack aftermarket wheels - bc of the high cost of shipping to an APO AE address.

Prices for complete winter wheel kits start at 1,200 and go to 1,440 euros. Take a VAT form to get out paying the 19% sales tax at your dealer. You can also get a further discount since you pay with cash. another 3% more for me.

One other nice thing going with the BMW wheels is that you do not need new wheel bolts. You can use the same bolts for winter and summer wheels. '

What does the "j" mean in 7jx17? Is it a typo? Also, what does "squares" ,mean? I am sorry, I am not smart when it comes to wheel/tire subjects!!
