Talking New-To-Me E70!

Hey guyssssss!

I'm officially the owner of an E70!

I picked up Ron's (Thunder22) at his lease turn-in yesterday. It's a 2008 3.0si black on black. I have several cosmetic mods planned, but the #1 on my list is new wheels!

I'm leaning toward style 214's, but want to make sure they're definitely what I want.

POST PICTURES OF YOUR WHEELS PLEASE!

(I apologize in advance if this thread exists... I haven't spent much time in the E70 forum!)

Congrats on the purchase! Glad to see you got it from an enthusiast.

Why not get the 128s? I think those are the best. Or there are X6M wheels for sale in the classifieds.., not positive on the fitment

Hey M! The 214's need special wheel arches I believe so I would double check before installing. Also from what I have heard the large RFT's are prone to picking up nails and or puncturing easy. I have the Y Spoke 211's and I really like them. They have smaller tires (which I'm going to swap out for non RFT's when the time comes to replace them) and I love the look. 209, 210, 212 all look the same to me. Do you have Sport?

I like those! How much will it cost to swap out the front/rear skirts for the larger wheels?

I'd definitely get the fender flares with the larger wheels.

I do not think I'll be putting RFTs on the new wheels. This X has a spare tire.
