X5 Tires on X3

Hi,
Anyone ever tried X5 tires (255/55/18) on the F25 X3 ? will it rub the inner fender ?
I tried put them on and seems that on tight turns it might rub so I decided not to get them.
Been looking for information but so far only found that people tried this in their previous X3 model which some said will rub.

I like the looks of the X5 on the X3, much fuller, and should be more comfortable ride.
In the first photo, the front was the X5 tire, while the rear was the stock
In the second photo, it was the X5 tire.
Any thoughts ?

The wheels are OK but the tires looks better (i.e. fill wheel well better). However, if the rolling circumference (not to mention offset, etc) are too far off, there could be other problems besides rubbing, such as odo/speedo being innacurate and xDrive, stability control system problems, etc.

I like 'em! They have a "turbine" look.
