Thanks for posting this pic of your X5. Looks like its Sterling Gray...and the Style 87 (5 spoke) or Style 168 (7 spoke) is what I've been considering as spring/summer/fall wheels for the sterling gray X5 I just picked up this past Thursday. Your pic gives me inspiration I like both wheels mentioned previously...but I may be leaning more towards the style 87 due to the ease of cleaning 5 spokes of the style 87 wheel. The more spokes the wheel has...the more tedious the cleaning of each spoke...and at this stage in my life..."ease" is a very important factor.

I just ordered a set of 4 Michelin Lattitude X-Ice xi2 dedicated winter tires which will be mounted to the 18" style 153 wheels that came on I won't have to make the final decision until closer to spring...but the style 87 so far have the slight edge.
