Got my new snow tires

I actually think these wheels look better than the stock BMW rims. They are a hell of a lot lighter, as well.

Weirdly, the make the car look a lot more black than the old wheels. Also too, a lot more M3ish.

Me neither. I'm thinking that I'll probably wait and see whether I even need snow tires this winter...
