October snow!

I was planning to purchase a set of 19" winter wheels for my X6 some time next month....unfortunately we already have snow in Rhode Island and I only own summer 20"s. I am not thrilled with the wheel options offered by the dealership or by tire rack . There are several other discussion threads about the "best snow tires" for the X6, so I don't want to rehash that topic. Instead I am wondering which 19" wheels/rims are preferred by forum members?

I'm not a fan of the 19" wheel options on tirerack. I'm looking for something a little more stylish....especially since they will be on the car for 4 months.

Providence = preparation in advance, foresight, care, guardianship, prudent management even; economy and control exercised by a divine direction.

Is choosing style over providence sensible?

The prudent manager would fit unstylish 19", winter wheels and tyres for the four dark months rather depend upon 20" lower profile, wider style statements.........yes?

Yes, but I had the "foresight" to realize that the tire rack options are not attractive. Therefore I was "prudent" and purchased a "divine" set of 19's.

By the way....I live in Providence, but I don't necessarily believe in it.

A very commendable reply sir(?), thank you for indulging this ex Yorktown resident. I trust that your foresight and prudence brings you safely through this winter's months challenges in some style.

Nice combination for sure. Do you have any pics of the car with these on? I ordered an X6 for Feb delivery and will most likely put a set of winter wheels/tires on it. Thx!

Yeah....OEM wheels are nice and $1000 more installed. Having said that, I am already having a bit of buyers remorse. I like the look, but am back at the shop currently because they were not installed properly. I have a right rear leak around the stem.
