Winter Rims Are On

Our winter rims finally arrived and were installed today. We are very happy with the look. So happy, we are not looking forward to putting them away in the spring!

..those look great, can you specify what offset those are? I'm looking at getting the same set, the one's I've seen are 18 x 8.5, with +35 offset, is that what you got? Also could you post some normal non-HDR photos please.

Wow they look great! 18's look pretty big in that wheel, so I'm guessing 20's will look huge

Looks great! You should get the silver mirror caps now. They would accent the wheels and roof rails.

Here's my winter set up - 17" Rial Salerno wheels with WS-70 Blizzaks. I'm surprised how small the wheels look in the photos, but I like the clean design.

Fantastic looking wheels Do they take run-flats and did you have to use spacers for the rears?

Would you be able to use OEM hub caps?

+1. Having had a chance to look at a real life sample, they look somewhat weedy since, in the M-sport versions, the painted wheel arch makes the area above the wheel arch look "thicker".

FYI there's some really good deals out there for rims today for Black Friday. I just ordered some replica CSL 18" from **********s for $499 a set! Going to put some Blizzaks on them for the winter. Will post pics once I get them.

There area lot of forum sponsors out there with really good specials, check out the sponsor area in the 3series forums since nothing is really targeted at the x3.

Hi there
I am running non run-flat winter tires but i can't see why they could not be fitted. No spacers, the offset is perfect front and back.....and they are relatively cheap here at around 165 euro per wheel.
The centre cap's are 60mm which is less than X3 OEM. I have since bought aftermarket BMW cap's which fit perfectly.
The high gloss finish matches the X-line and alu rails quite nicely.

regards

I received my Sportline CSL wheels today, very pleased with them. They are very light at just 20 lbs each for an 18" wheel plus I like that they have an OEM like silver finish instead of that hyper silver that many wheels are offered in now a days. Well here is a pic, and I hope to get the Blizzaks mounted on them tomorrow. I might wait a few days to put them on the car though since we just picked it up not even a week ago and I have barely taken any pictures of the car on the Msport 19s.

I ordered the 20" M6 style wheels from **********s.com and they should be here soon, so I'll post pics once I mount them up
**********s is shipping them with TPMS sensors and Continental D/W tires mounted up. I ended up w/ a staggered setup, 8.5" front and 9.5" rear w/ 245/40/20 and 275/35/20 tires
