Hi guys

I ordered a 04 x5 4.4 and now I am looking for a set of 18 inch rim for winter.

Does anyone know the bolt size, offset and width which will fit my car? Will the M5 replica fit the x5 ?

Thanks for the help.

for winter tires, you should go with a smaller rim (17") and appropriate tires to match. going to an 18" rim costs more $$$$$ significantly, and provides less wall height and has a wider footprint (all the opposites you would want in a winter tire setup) for the car.

these are 17" ATP Razze wheels with Dunlop winter tires....

more than adequate for an X5. I am currently selling these, and will be buying 18" for my new 4.6is that cannot fit the 17" due to the size of the front rotors (much larger than standard X5 4.4).... :o(
