Yea Check out BavAuto.com for some nice ACS rims or some Mutec rims. They are real nice but also real expensive.

I have a 2003 X5 3.0

its becoming increasingly more common to see rims for the X, i actually like the stock 19's (or are they 20's) that come on the 4.6is.

bavauto has some good aftermarket rims.


p.s- welcome to BMW-forums

Thanks RFredeking, e36_m3_Turbo and Furious for the tip on bavauto.com. They have nice stuff. I'm still looking for something with a bit more surface finish for a polished rim. I likey the shiney rims. Looks like I might be getting a deal on a X5 4.4L vs. the 3.0. I'm totally excited and I'll keep you updated.

take care from this lil girly-girl,

the X5 is available with 19's and 20's too. The 20 inch option are the nice 5 spoke wheels that look kinda like AC's . I recommend going on tirerack.com and using their applet to fit all different types of wheels on your vehicle to see what you like. Altho, nothing can beat AC's on a bimmer.
