Confirm wheel fitment please?

https://nmi.craigslist.org/wto/d/tra...835903877.html



these are style 211 wheels right?
All 211 wheels are 9x19 with 48mm offset right?

With the correct hubcentric spacers, 72.56 to 74.1, these wheels will fit my 2006 3.0 X5 right?

Like these https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-3...or-e39-wheels/
The tires are 255/50R19 and I assume they will fit because I have been running 275/40R20 s with no issues other than blowing another tire just now..


Just want to confirm..
I'm screwed on tires again right now and need replacements ASAP

What do you think the chances of the local BMW dealer having the right hubcentric ring adapters in stock so I don't have to wait for them?
Prolly zero..

Could I run them for maybe a week before I can get my hands on the spacers as long as I stay off highways and keep it under 65ish?

thank you..

You can wrap a shit ton of teflon tape around the hub to get an ok center until the rings come. If the wheels are from an x70 they should work fine on any e53 without custom larger brakes.

Buy one roll for each wheel I bet you can get enough spacer.

Get plastic spacers. I have aluminum for wife's E53 using e70 wheels. The aluminum a re email great until you want/need to put E53 wheel back on (think winter set or spare tire).

Thanks!! Appreciate the tips!
I'm pretty excited to go get them tomorrow!


This will make it 7 sets of BMW wheels I own, 3 with matching spares, but no set with good tires left that fit the X5, lol..

Gotta buy tires, might as well buy some with wheels in em, and these look pretty darn nice, especially for the price..

Might buy some summer tires for the 20" beyern wheels and repaint them so good tip on the plastic spacers. I was looking at the metal ones but will surely buy plastic now that you mention it.

Those will fit fine. I used these plastic hub centric rings on my front wheels (I have X6 wheels) and was pleased with the quality and speed of shipping for the price.

Thanks for the link. I just ordered a pair for when I put my wife's E70 rims back on. The aluminum rings were already getting pretty corroded they weren't anodized!

Got em!
They are pretty nice but their is some yellowing on the wheels and the center caps are bubbled a little bit but the tires are great..

The wheels say UNITED STATES on the back so I guess they were made here eh?

I'm going to see what I can't do to make some spacers until I get the real ones in the mail..

The BMW dealership didn't have them..
They didn't have the O-rings I need for the e36 either and couldn't even pull them up on a diagram..
Unimpressed.. All they wanted to tell me about were the new christal shift knobs and automatic luggage covers, lol..
