Please post your pics of an X5M w/ Aftermarket Wheels

I'm looking for a set of aftermarket wheels that will fit an X5M.

There doesn't seem to be alot of options. Can we get a thread going of whats out there ?

Thanks

Jeff

Does the truck require Runflats? or has anyone replaced them with regular performance radials?

I have run-flats but you can replace with non run-flats. Just don’t' get a flat. I have heard the ride is much better. I am concidering the non run-flats.

Just checked the weight on the runflats...holy schnikeys! They weigh 41 lbs each for fronts and 47 lbs each for rears. That's crazy! The previous set of tires I had on my 4.8 in the same sizes were Toyo Proxes and they are 34 lbs front and 37 lbs rear...add it up and that's a 34 lb difference in rotating mass. Removing that would be the equivalent of dropping 340 lbs or adding 34 hp!

The first thing I'm going to do is to swap out tires. I am sure it will make a huge difference.

Yikes. Very interesting. That scares me knowing I am running BMW wheels Style 215 wheels that are heavy and run-flats. 85lbs for the rears!

Would you share the math so I can figure out how big of an anchor I am dragging.

BUT maybe the runflats are a heavier load capacity tire? The truck does weigh in at 5400+

What does the dealer say about running a performance radial over the Runflats?

There are other non runflat tires that can handle the weight. Many tire come in a runflat and non-runflat.

Define "performance radial". I am running the Dunlap SP Sport Maxx (BMW recommend for this wheel). The Sport Maxx comes in runflat and non-runflat. I believe it is considered performance. Not sure you would want or could find one large enough to run a R-compound.

I think I just solved my winter tire/wheel/heavy Runflat problem

Continental ExtremeContact DWS M&autoModClar=Built Before 10/10

it a non runflat so it is lighter
it is all season so it should be fine in the snow
and it is a performance oriented tire so dry weather, while not as good as a all out summer tire, it still will be good enough

Now no need for another set of wheels/tires sitting around all year!
what do you think?
