Mein Auto: 05 X5, 00 323 wagon
FS: Style 87 X5 wheels w/ tires $750

Wheels in good condition, straight, no bends or wobbles, OEM size so they fit perfectly, no rubbing even at full turn lock. Recently purchased from another person, I commute far so these are not working for me, going back to the 17" wheels. Wheels have a plastidip coating in anthracite grey that can be removed (see you tube ). Wheels are chrome.
Size info below:
9,5 x 20 front ET 45
10,5 x 20 back ET 30
Rear: 315/35/20 (80%)
Front:275/40/20 (65%)

Center caps included. My TPMS light not activated so i am assuming that the wheels include the TPMS sensors

Prefer local buyer, nor cal bay area..txt 925-325-4381

Mein Auto: 1997 740iL / 2006 X5 4.4
Just an FYI...an 05 e53 X5 doesn't use sensors inside the wheels (TPM aka "tire pressure monitoring" system)...it uses the abs wheel sensors (FTM aka "flat tire monitiring" system) to calculate overall tire rotation (which is determined when the system is reset based on instructions in owners manual). When a tire loses air, it's overall rotation circumference changes...thus the Flat Tire Warning illuminates when the value is below specification.

You c a n see the chart below to see which bmw models use the "direct" TPM system and which used the "indirect" FTM system.
