Mein Auto: x5
smaller wheels needed,

hi every one,

im new to site,
i have an x5 (2002 4.4 sport) with 19inch alloys on but i am going to austria for winter and cannot find any winter tyres to fit nineteens , the guy at tyre place said to try and find out if any 16 or 17 inch alloys of any thing else will fit,
so just wondering if any body knew if 16 or 17 inch alloys off any other car would fit,
would be brilliant if any body has any info
thanks in advance

Contact John Lance at edwintertires. Obviously, the X5 is not available for ED, but since he rents tires , he may be able to help.

If you go with 17" do not drive the car as hard as with the 19". It will be much much softer.
