X5M Wheels on X5 M-Sport with Adapters

Hello all,
I know there has been some discussion on this topic related to adapters or boring out hubs to get X5M wheels to fit on X5 hubs in the rear. I did this for winter wheels, as I did not prefer the look of my previous style 209 wheels on our M Sport. So, I ordered the custom adapters from Motorsports Tech in Sparks, NV (owner Lenny was great to deal with, recommend this source). The rear adapters are 15mm thick and fit on the 74.1mm hub and convert the hub to 72.56mm.

The fit of the adapters is perfect. No slop at all. Appearance is just as good if not a little cleaner than the H&R spacers I've used previously. I've briefly got to 80mph with no vibration or noise at all. Extended wheel bolts in the rear also, by the way. Pics attached! Before, the adapter on the hub, and the new wheels and winter tires. We keep our winters on from November until May, so I had to ease the visual pain until the summers get back on. At least, we hope it will stop snowing, right?

Hi,

Nice car. Looks just like mine..
I'm going to order these adapters too but I cant find them in 15mm on the website, just 19 and above.. Did you call in the order? Need them to be as thin as possible as my wheels are 12x22" and I'm only buying to avoid boring..

Yes, I called direct to confirm the thinnest spacer possible. The 15mm is as thin as possible. Owner's name is Lenny. He is very knoweldgable about what we are trying to do with the adapter. Tell him you are from a BMW X5 forum. Not sure about currency conversion, but his prices are good. He also has the extended wheel bolts you will need. Good luck!
