M Parallel Wheels

I have always wondered what M parallels would look like on an X5. Anyone have this setup? Thoughts or comments? Thanks

They actually look pretty damn good. I recall sometime back seeing pictures of them on an X5, where the owner had put snow tires on them and used them for his winter setup. Unfortunately I don't have the pics.

There is a company doing business on ebay who sell replicas. They have a 20" version of the M Parallel wheels!

Looks good, but would look better if the wheels were 19s or even 20s. 19s are so common on the 4.4s that anything smaller looks funny imo.

Those are 18" replicas with snow tires. A couple guys here in Toronto that I know of are using them for winters.

I likey likey. I'd definitely love to see them in 20" on an X5. The M Parallel is one the nicest wheels that BMW has offered.

Hi guys! First time to this board, over from bimmer.org. The X5 in the pictures above is mine, and I appreciate the comments. Just as an FYI, the set-up is for sale, mounted with Pirelli snows. Check out my listing on bimmer.org for details... hope I didn't breakany forum rules with my plug.

I agree that 19's or 20's would look awesome... 18 was as big as I could go for the winter, and they worked and looked awesome.

Cheers,
Jeff
