They'll NEVER be shiny...they're matte black, so yes I will have to clean them, but at least when they're dirty, it's not AS noticeable as when they were silver.

They're the 21" rims...285 front, 325 rear.

TSM? Total Stealth Mode? That's Super Macho? I'm not up on all the 3-letter acronyms.

Your X5 Color...

I was referring to the color of your X... The same as mine
Titanium Silver Metalic = the best color on an E70.

FYI, I have custom gun metal/Steel Blue wheels on mine.

Pictures from Last Summer...

These are a bit dated (7/2010) as I've made several other mods to the X5 since then, but this will show you the color of the rims...

Thanks for asking...
