i would have liked to have a more agressive tire setup in rear but the next size up was a 295/35 but it was a .35" overall diameter difference compared to the .16" difference that is on the 275/35's and i was afraid that might be too large of a varience for the xdrive

What's the offset of those rims? Im looking at getting some wheels for my X3 but trying to make it as flush as possible. based on a 10.5" rim, I am scared that I am going to end up rubbing the inside.

Please let me know, so I can finally order mine. Thanks

Those are some great looking wheels! I like the dark shade w/ the white exterior

My 20" M6 style rims came yesterday and I installed them tonight. Fit is good and the ride is about the same going from the 18's to 20's.
Here's a quick pic I took after installing them

That would be greatly appreciated... The rims that I am looking to get are 20x10.5 ET 45 in the back and 20x9 ET 35 in the fronts. Hopefully that will make it flush but without seeing other wheels out there its hard to say if it will poke it out too much

His original post here shows that they are solid.

I am also curious to where he got them as they look very clean on those rims. M6 rims look bad ass on the X3's Nice purchase.

Your set up looks awesome, the tint and wheels are very well balanced with the AW. Nicely done.

They're gunmetal with a machined face, I got them from **********s.com. The only other colors I've seen are all black and all silver

now this thread is getting good. mikeith your car is looking awesome. I'm surprised 9.5 fronts with +35 offset clears the struts, I guess it's because the tire doesn't extend past the rim, unlike my blizzaks. the 20" m6 rims look really clean too.
