Wheel spacers?

I have a X5 4.4I with 19 in. OEM rims, 285/40 rear and 265/40 front. I was thinking about getting some spacers for the rear to give it a more flush look. Has anyone with these wheels or similar know: What brand is good? What size spacers/bolts? (i was thinking 25mm if possible) Where the best place to buy them online?
I've seen some online that don't come with longer bolts and I haven't seen any bolts online... PLEASE HELP?

My rears are H&R 25mm with the longer bolts.

I order them all from here.

Hope this helps.

Thanks man! Nice X5 by the way, did yours come with those black hood vent covers or did you buy them from somewhere? I want to replace the grey stock ones badly

Thanks. The vent covers came as standard for the 4.6is. You should be able to just spray paint them!

why do you need longer bolts you can just buy these h & r spacers that spacer bolts into the hub and wheel bolts into the spacer that what i have and many other member here don't need to worry about braking the bolts, here is the link

I use the H&R 25mm spacers- the kind that bolt to the hub with my OE staggered 19's. It's been lowered about an inch with H&R front springs and rear links, and I've added the 4.8is rear flares and running boards, so the wheels don't look as wide in the wheel wells as on a stock bodied 4.4.....
