535 -> M5 Winter setup

Currently have a 535 x-drive and need a winter wheel/tire set for this year. When my lease is up I plan to replace with an M5. It will likely be a MY2016 or 2017. Ideally, I'd like to purchase a winter set that I can keep for the M. I realize a redesign is coming for either 2016 or 2017. Any suggestions for wheel styles that might work for my scenario?

If I have to ditch this set it's not the end of the world.. Just thought I'd ask you guys for opinions before I do anything.

Thanks for any help.

If you have or bought a set of wheels for the use on 535 and going to use them in the future M5, the offset is different + they will not fit due to brake caliper clearance issue.

I don't have anything right now. Are there any style rims that will fit both vehicles... And look good too?

These were made for you. I bought a set from this seller a few months ago. GREAT to work with. Honest and fair.

^ I have this myself but with Michelin PA4. Do note if you are buying this 345M, they have different width (front 19 * 9 & back 19 *10). Therefore, if you intend to run a square setup, you will have to remember which wheels are for the front and which ones for the back.
