If I end up with them, the KW coilover kit and new bushings will go on B4 these wheels.

I bid low to "test the waters" on them, seeing as I got my current set off e-bay for $600. The tires alone cost over $1000 on Tire Rack, and still had the mold nubs on the tread surfaces. A SWAG deal (stolen without a gun).

Nice! They make the brakes really stand out too. Thanks Ti!

Btw, what are the wheel widths and offsets for those? Are they an E53 fitment?

Alpina designed for E53 fitment, Ronal was contracted to produce.

Front are 10" and +50mm offset, rears are 11.5" and +28mm offset.

The current wheels on my X are E53 fitment, 8.5f and 9.5r 19s. Don't recall the offset but had to install 25mm spacers to get the rears out where I want them.

Ah. I think your current wheels are M3 spec, I see a lot of that size (8.5/9.5) on M3 and the E46 guys. Our trucks run 9" front/10" rear wheela for the sport package. Thanks for the info!

Good luck with the bid, post pics when you get them on please!

Will do.

You're probably right with the E46/M wheel info. I have to swap those wheels in the pic for the OE when I load the X and tow at the same time.

The wheels are load rated 680kg each, but a rear wheel with full tread tire mounted tips the scale at under 50 lbs.

WOW! I know a guy selling these in the UK for 1600 WITH nearly new quality branded tires, and he had them refurbed before sale.

Ive seen these and they are definitely one of the best wheels for the E53

i was reading that weight was an issue with those Alpina wheels. how much do they weigh? and what reccomendations/opinions are there for a light weight 20" wheel? cuz 20' is the direction im headed. i think the size looks great on an e53
