Very tastefully done Did you tint the windshield as well? Love the tints!

But they are a pain to clean!

I did, but I have since had it removed (got a ticket for it) and put the 6" tint visor on the windshield. I miss the whole windshield being tinted

^ I know, I have tinted windshield on all my cars (other than the 40d... yet), as well as a 6" strip Makes a huge difference! Not heat, sun, headlights... and no light coming through making my side windows look lighter.

^ Its really not as bad as people make it out to be 50% on the windshield is not noticeable from the inside... You would never know unless someone told you. 5% on the sides is not THAT bad, but yes, you do notice it. But the positive-S- outweigh the negatives for me

Hi Michelle,

What wheel/tire combo did you go with, first off it looks awesome and secondly I'm actively looking for a set of 20's and wheel arches as I want to make some minor updates to the wife's X5.




It doesn't look bad at all now, and I'm going to keep the factory 19's for the winter, but it's missing that 'aggressive' look.

Thanks! I went with 20 OEM 227m Staggered Wheels with Toyo Proxes ST II tires.

Got new wheels (thanks for the referral 95wildtt)... you know what's funny is the dying TPMS sensors led me to discovering the Toyo Proxes STII tires had hairline cracks in the rubber due to them being 6 years old now, so I had to swap out tires and decided this would be the perfect time to swap wheels too. I liked the 214s except they were reps and had an unsolvable vibration above 60mph. I just couldn't deal anymore.

These 433 reps are perfect as far as a smooth ride goes. I put them on staggered Conti DWS (same sizes as the old set) as I wanted a change from 2 sets of Toyos too - and it feels like a considerably lighter car in terms of acceleration and turns at slow speed. The M5 wheels were my first choice but they don't come in a staggered size that fits the X5. Parting words for the Toyo Proxes STIIs - I put nearly 40k miles on them and they still had 8/32 tread life left - great tire. Time will tell how these compare.

Aesthetics - I'm still not 100% sure about the dark shade of these against a white X5. I got some aluminum plastidip on the way and will see how that goes. More pics after that project is done. The old rims were 11" wide in the rear and these are 10.5". You can tell the difference as the rubber tucks in on the rim more than I'd like. Also I need to widen them out from the arches even more which means 25 or 30mm spacers instead of 20mm. What do you guys think of the shade?
