I was thinking of using the stock 18" rims for the winter and get some nice chrome 18"s to put the stock all seasons on. Anyone have ideas for me?
Keep an eye on e-bay. My X5d has the 20's, but just picked up a full set of 19" OE #334 take-offs (wheels & the stock A/S RF tires) off ebay to use as my winter set. Paid $1200 and the tires have virtually no wear and wheels in perfect shape.
