What year and model is your X5?

My '02 w/o sports package rides rough enough with 20" wheels, I would never do 22" on mine.

Here are some pics of my 2002 4.6is with 22x10.5 AC Schnitzer Type II wheels front and rear, Michelin 295/35/22 tires, lowering springs in the front, lowering links in the rear, 30mm spacers on the rear wheels. Doesn't ride rough like some would have you believe, I didn't notice much of a difference at all, definitely handles better, less body roll. Also I weighed the wheels, the, the AC Schnitzers came in 2lbs less than my stock 87's.
