My 14 silver X3 M sport with aggressive staggered 20's

These rims look stunning in person and its finishes are top notch. I also tried ITM TPMS with great success.

Looking good!...Very good!
Can you please also post a few side view pictures. Preferably from about 20 meter.
It will give us a better idea on how the car will look to other drivers.

Hey guys, thanks for the kind word. Sure! I'll just take out my cannon camera out today during lunch. In my opinion it's absolutely necessary to use a real camera instead of iphone to better tell how these wheels/tire look under shadow in the bottom of the car.

The wheels are 20x9 offset 35 for the front, and 20x10.5 offset 38 for the back with 245/40/20 and 275/35/20 tires. The ride quality is unaffected to my surprise except slightly heavier steering.

Thanks guys, I was really going for that muscular look that x3 often lacks of in stock setting. I am now shopping for the base support system to complete the overall look.

Call me weird but I like x3 better with 2 aluminum bars on top.

Damn!!!!! Amazing!!! By far the best wheel setup I've seen on any X3. I have the same wheels and now I am definitely kicking myself for not going with a 20" and staggered setup... oh well... well done! gives off the same mean-looking effect as an x5 with the staggered setup.

It now looks like the way the X5 M Sport package comes from factory. I would have gotten fatter spokes but love the overall direction you've taken this

Hey Elelbot, your car was a inspiration for me, I wouldn't consider this set of wheels without your pictures.

I originally opted for CV3 style 5 thick spokes style, then later switched to M5 gunmetal style to retain the clean/stock look. Lucky that gamble has paid off.

The rear rims are more conclave than the front in person!

Looks sick. Just got the wife a x3 AW, and I'm looking for some wheels for it too. Love how yours look, congrats.

Thanks, AW goes with any color actually, great choice! =D Now I am debating whether the black grill will look good or not...

What a great looking car! The alloys look perfect and I love the car in silver, even though I had a few second thoughts about mine. Seeing yours makes me realize I chose the right color!

The black grill looks good, but is fitted as standard to the smaller engine cars - like mine!

Post some pics of your front end! I love titanium silver on x3 because it is a tad sportier than AW while still showing off its sleek lines. Never wanted any other color. =)

I love the black grill with the chrome outer edge! Where did you get that? My wife's 328i has that but I can't find anyone that sells it on the Internet.
