F15 style 446 wheels?

Anyone running F15 style 446 wheels? 18x8 255/55R18 tires?

I found a local set. My X5 needs new tires so why not upgrade?

Pictures?

Just in case you didn't know...the e70 & f15 X5 have a different size wheel hub. Their wheel hubs center bore is 74.1mm (just like the e39 5 series) whereas the e53 X5 has a 72.56mm center bore.



You will have to use hub-centric rings or hub centric wheel adapters that have an interior dimension of 72.56mm hub and an outer dimension of 74.1mm in order to get f15 X5 wheels to fit properly on an e53 X5.

Working with centric rings is not bad. It's the guys that rotate tires, I don't trust. I'll look for metals ones.

Will the E53 hub bolts work on E70 and F15 wheels? My choices are upgrade to 18X8 F15 wheels/or others or maybee plasti dip the 130 style to black.
