E70 and E53 rims

I have 2010 4.8 X5 with 20 inch staggered tires. My question is can E53 18 inch rims fit my 10 X5? Thanks in advance for any help

Yes - if you open the bores to 74.1.

P.S. Whoever's admin here, can we make this topic sticky? The question of wheel fitment comes every week.

Thanks for your reply. Not really a mechanical guy here. What do you mean "open the bores to 74.1"? thanks

The hub (see pic) on E53 is slightly smaller in diameter, so the wheel won't fit on E70 hub. Other option is to use spacers, since most likely you have arch extenders and 18" wheels will look ultra-ridiculous as is.

he means on the rims - the hole (bore) at the center on the rim - which attached to the hub is smaller on the e53 rim than your 2010 X5 -so in order to fit you must make this hole (bore) larger

THanks for your answer. I really appreciate fast response. It will probably look funny or ultra ridiculous but I guess it will due for the winter. It seems too much for 20" winter tires
