I'm just wondering for those that have aftermarket, what did you do w/your stocks? Keep them or sell them? I've been told to keep mine when I have a flat. But the odds of that occuring is very slim. Most of the time, the stocks will be just sitting in the garage. Besides, even if I did get a flat on my new aftermarket wheels, the tires would have to be replaced sooner or later. Anyways, what do you guys think...sell my stocks or just keep them?

since you have a m3.. the market for m3 rims pretty much SUCK!

regular 3er can't really run those, and what are the chances of you finding another m3 owner who will want to buy stock rims?

so i say keep it. that's what people usually do, and with regular 3er, there is a market for m68 and type 44, so people sell them.

hi i have a m3 to

i was going to say put your snow tires on them. thats what i did.
i live in new york. but i notice you are on the west coast.
in this case i would tell you to keep them for when you sell your car. put them back. it is easyer to sell your after market wheels.

thats what i am going to do. i just put on my hre540 for the summer. our cars have tire sizes that the back tires are very hard to sell.you can sell the front tires easy to a 3 series car. keep your back tires for when you sell your car. if you find someone sell your back tires but not your wheels. i found out people want the wheels that came with our cars as oringinal wheels. when they buy these kinds of cars.

it snows here 5 days in a year in the coast region, so why keep-em?

if i were u i would do what bobm3 said ..........even though there is not much snow on west coast, snow tires always comes in handy during autumn and winter when there is leaves or salt on the ground.........and the oem tires can be sold rather easily

I was going to but might be reconsidering..... last weekend I had to patch both (yes both) my rear tires. It sucked!!:banghead: So you never know when you might need them. Of course, I live in a area where we are always expanding so a flat tire or running over a nail is pretty common. Good luck with the decision though;) Brandon
