Default Wanted: used set of BMW type 237 wheels

Hello all,

I just purchased a 2013 535i manual and since I live in Minnesota, I need an extra set of wheels for snow tires. My preference is type 237 wheels. thanks. Horace Beale. Thanks.

An observation, if I may Horace...

15-spoke wheels are not optimal to use as snow tires because of their propensity to clog up with ice and snow. This would make the wheel unbalanced and cause the car to shake. As long as you're aware of that, good luck in your quest.

Thanks for your advise. I normally don't have this issue since I keep my car in a heated garage.

The condition usually occurs while driving in deep snow.

I think he needs wheels, not tires.
