I purchased the pucks from RockAuto.com PART #51711960752. Made by URO. Supposed to be aftermarket for the same BMW part number. We will see when the get here tomorrow.

The pucks came in today. I went out and installed one in the rear lift hole on the drivers side. The pucks have an oval shaped post that fits the lift hole with a plastic clip on each side then keeps them from falling out. The clips don't hold it tight against the bottom of the car, there is a little play, but I don't think there is much chance of them falling out. Seems like a good fit. I did not take the time to try the front locations as I have read that the puck may need to be trimmed a little to keep it away from the sheet metal. That may wait for warmer weather when the garage floor is not as dirty.

Overall, I am satified with the purchase.

Thanks, SC. I think I'll go ahead and order a set. It'll help in doing my own change from summer to winter wheels, and back.

Like this... only you shouldn't have to cut off as much (mine only needed ~1/4"):
