Price for 209 with snow run-flat
 
I ordered 20" wheels for my 4.8i. I need winter wheels. My dealer has offered me the 18" 209 wheels with run-flat snow tires for $753 each. Does that sound reasonable?

Thanks

3G's for winter wheels.:yikes: ....well I guess you are getting OEM's so if you don't mind paying for it then go ahead. If you decide to go with OEM's I would call Morristown to see if they can beat it.
Personally, I would never spend that $ on a set of wheels whole sole purpose is to drive through the snow, slush and salt - I have bought 3 sets of winters for various cars from tire rack for a lot less and never had a problem....I don't know what kind of availability there is for E70 packages

I agree that $3000 does sound like a lot for winter wheels. The interesting thing, for me anyway, is that the TireRack package for their 18" wheels with run-flats come to $2800 (including shipping) and I don't like their "local installers" (who have been using to change my seasonal wheels for my old 328i).
So I guess I've answered my own question... ;) The $3000 for OEM wheels & tires is reasonable.

Those runflats are $$$$ , about double the price of the scorpion ice winter for same size tire :yikes: :yikes:

But yes, if you want 18 runflats for winter go OEM for that difference - no potential for problems with finish, balance, hubcentric etc. etc.
