There are so many questions about what wheels and tires to choose. Online retail sites and 'configurators' don't give a true sense of what works and what looks best. Post pics of your wheels and tires here!!

ekvals, where did you purchase those wheels? I'm looking at buying 214's but a bit concerned about getting reps...

Reps are usually heavier, correct?

Hi.

I got mine from a place called wheelbase in Britain.. They fit straight on to the e53 without hub rings.

They might be heavier then OEM as metioned, but i have never compared them.. Im very happy about my replica rims.. Especially when considdering that getting the OEM here in Norway would be 4-5 times the price.

Wheel and tire pic!

Hi Guys,

This is an old pic of our first X...2002 3.0. 22's are not our favorite anymore and we're looking to get some 87's if anyone is selling!!!

Thanks and enjoy!

OEM Style 168, with Michelin Latitude HP's. These tires have worked the best for me. Smooth and quiet for many miles.
