What do you think of these wheels for my X5?


I am assuming they will fit an X5.

The X5 is a substantial car with body mass. The thin 5 spoke design, with the moronic compulsion to reduce tire profile will highlight the small brakes and rotors AND make it look even less connected to the road surface.

The design is too plain and simple. Go for something with larger spokes

Also did not think of the issues ard raised.

Very easy to wash/clean - a big plus given brake dust is a real issue!

I dont like that wheel. Not for the X5. But it dosen't matter what we think. Its up to you. What do YOU like. Just because you like a picture of a wheel, or actually see some wheels in person, dosen't mean you will like them when they get on your vehicle. TRUST ME I KNOW. I had a very expensive lesson. "oh...I like these wheels, they look so good. (and they did)" But when I put them on the vehicle.......... Try to find a website (like the tirerack) where you can put different wheels on your vehicle so you can see how the wheel will look on your SAV. I dont know if the tirerack has the X5.
