They look like a good fitment, whereas my boss tried them on an F30 330d and they poked out far too much.

Might know of a set that have been re-done black going for good money if you are interested? They have tyres fitted as well.

I have 270Ms as my M2 winter wheels, not the same visual effect as 19s but good for usability in poor conditions.

Winter tires are shagged once they get below 5mm really...
F20 M135i - most toys
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!
F87 M2 - most toys

Anyone know if 17’s fit over the brakes?

Just looking at a spacesaver spare for longer journeys abroad & only seem to go up to 17.

Searching around not seen any 270m wheels with the grey RDC pressure sensors.
I assume there is no way (without coding) to switch the car from RDC to the old method of measuring wheel rotation speed via abs sensors whilst winters are on?
Fitting RDC sensors to already mounted tyres obviously adds to the cost somewhat.

Just got a pristine set of 270M’s with 6mm tread Michelin Alpins for £400 off gumtree. Just need to get a set of the tpms rdc sensors fitted. so winters all sorted for under £600.
Not bad at all.
