I'm not a huge fan of the wheels, but you've got a 4.6is and X5M so you are cool in my book!

I like the X in blue. I think it goes well with the 4.6 theme. Good choice!

Did I miss the part where you asked for opinions on your wheels?

I thought the same thing when I saw the pic. I am OCD about unsprung weight and got staggered 19s that are only load rated to 680 Kg each (5984 lbs GVW max), the rear tire/rim assy is under 50 lbs each. The downside is I have to mount the OE wheels/tires when I tow with a loaded truck. Pic in post #1562.

This is not a lot of mass the wheels are fully forged centers and barrels with titanium nuts and bolts. The fronts wheels weight 36lbs and the rears only 39 lbs.

Those weights are wheels without tires. The D'lop Sport Max in 315-35-20 weighs in at 46 lbs tire alone. Tire/rim assy is around 85 lbs.

Not to mention, the further away the mass is from the center, the more force it needs to change speed

Not saying its the end of the world or whatever, to each their own and all. If you dig the wheels, rock on. :)

I agree. If you like the look that's all that matters.
