87's, but I'm biased!

87's!
The Giovanna's look nice but those rivet recesses are going to be a pain to clean.

...QTip City every week or so, to keep the rivet holes
clean. I actually like the "black" Finichi wheel a lot...
87s are stock, but an outstanding looking wheel, imo.

If you put the 87's on your X is going to looking like everyone else's...not saying that there's anything wrong with that though

Very easy to keep clean and perfect. Maybe go for the chrome 87's for a slighly different look.

I love the dalars most but the main thing holding me back from them is fear that they will stand out too much and take away from the overall design of the car, this is mainly because of the rivets. I hadn't thought about cleaning them but looking at them now I can see they're just waiting to be built up with brake dust. Does anyone think they would take away from the X5 design? I'm afraid they would attract the wrong kind of attention if ya know what I mean.

Cool

I'd stick to OEM or OEM replicas. Like FrankX5 said before, a lot of members here go with 87's. I wonder why? They look friggin' good on pre-face lifted X5's. IMO those other rims look a little "ganster", however I believe they are good quality. Another thought: OEM or OEM reps might appeal to a larger buying group when you resell you X5.

I go for the Vicenza. I love the black color combination. I can imagine the rims in my Titanium Silver X5.

Perfect match.............
