Hello,

I just got of the phone with a local supplier and to my disappointment there aren't any more steel wheels for a 3-series, in my case a 2004 320i.
I replied thank you ang hang up, since I don't realy buy this.

I was told that Nokian tires are the best for this car, is it true?

Currently, I have 205/55/16 all season on mag wheels.

Can you please recommend to me what is a proper size of wheel and tire I should go with for the harsh canadian winter?

Any place in Toronto, I can try and get steel wheels?

Will 15" won't clear the clippers?


Thanks in advance.

205/55/16 seems to be the winter tire size of choice for the e46, bavauto.com currently has Hakkapeliitta 2 (Nokian) tires on steel rims for $950 in this size. I think there is a studded winter tire option available as well if studded tires are still legal where you live.
