X3 35i stock rims on 28i?

I took delivery today and took notice that my 28i came equipped with the stock 35i rims mounted with good year tires 245/50/18R.

I am def. loving that! the 35i rims are way better looking then the stock 28i

You got lucky! Does the window sticker list the X3 35i wheels or still the 28i wheels?

Nope. Window sticker doesn't mention anything about rims.

my SA said that they were running out of stock of the 307 wheels that the 28i normally comes with so they substituted the 308's from the 35i models. But yes in real life those wheels look great. Pictures don't do it justice. Funny that the Canadian's get that one as the stock wheel.

Hi Scuba, when was yours built? Mine is being built today and I am hoping it will have the 35 rims as well

Thank you. I have my fingers crossed. Btw, did you get a video of your car being made before delivery?

Literally just got the email about the video today. Looks like approx 1 week lag between production completion and getting to see the video.

--Yeah us too. These are their new eco conscious all season tires. Looks promising. No survey information yet about how they do in the snow or ice but that may be because it's brand new.

Here's what we got:

My Cooper S came with pirelli Euforia's and they were great in wet and dry conditions.
