20 in wheels for my 2007 x3

i just bought 20 in rims from blustar wheels in ca. great people to work with and very knowledgable about bmws. the wheels are 9.5 all around with 275 40 hankook ventus tires. i can't tell the difference in the ride compared to my stock 18s with 235 50 tires. the 20 in wheels will be fore summer and the 18s for winter.

Like the wheel design, but the size makes the X3 look a bit too cartoony. 19 inch is as big as I'd ever go on this car.

Nice looking rims but I'd hate to have to clean the brake dust out of all those corners.

Not sure about the ride quality, but the wheels sure look great with your red X3!

I did not know they made X5 wheels for an X3. The OEM X5 wheels are a lot wider.

Are these BMW or knock offs?

And what is Hanook? Never heard of that brand.

Nice ride though. Red is really sharp.

Very nice looking E70 reps!
And, I really like the way they fill in the std large
wheel well gap that X3s tend to show.

Looks good Bob. That setup is almost the exact diameter/circumference of the winter setup I just bought, but you are 20 mm wider. At full turn, we get a little rubbing with quicker speed in turns. Are you having any issues with that?

Looks fantastic, that's what the X3 needed to fill the wheel wells out, very nice.

I was wondering about this too. I'm on 19s and it's pretty easy to clean right now but those crevices on the style 214s look pretty rough to clean. Any experiences for anyone out there?
