Snow Set Up - M340i

I will be taking off my Summer wheels/tires set up in few months. So, I am looking for recommendation for wheels/tire package set that will be used from October - April. (I am in CT) I am going with non-run flat all season tires as well. Also, do F30 wheels fit on M340?
Thanks!

??? If you’re going to the trouble of swapping wheels and tires why would you not use winter tires?

No need in CT for a winter tire.. where I am the roads are plowed well... I will be using this set up from Oct - April and all season work the best for me. Also, the last thing you want is to drive on snow tire in Oct or April...

Does anyone know if F30 wheels fit G20?

I like Conti DWS06 for an all season tire that's decent in the snow.

G 20 Wheels

G20 wheels have bolt setting of 5 x 112

F30 wheels have bolt setting of 5 x 120


So F30 wheels will not fit

I have same issue and am selling my 405M 18 inch but UK only - It may be possible to use wheel adaptors but then issues with offset possibly

Nothing in UK - I bought from Germany direct - Good price too and Continental T860S tyres - Style in black Matt

Hope that helps
