X6m on 22"

I just ordered a set of adv5.1 22"x10.5 front and 22x12 rear wheels with perilli 335/25r22 and 295/30r22 tires.
-To all running this setup hows the ride?
-Have you had issues popping tires in potholes?
-How's the look? -Is their enough sidewall? -I hate the rubber band tire look-
Any pics would be great.
Thanks

U won't be dissapointed. Ride is a little stiffer 2 be expected, but not bad. And they will look sick. Good choice.

Im running this set up on my X5 right now with Vorsteiner VS-110's. Ride isn't bad at all and haven't had any issues with potholes, but I live in Texas so the roads are decent. Looks awesome and not too rubber band like. People have literally made u-turns to come back around to tell me how badass it looks. Trust me, you won't be disappointed! Congrats!

You'll need a drop or it will look like your truck is going to the beach!

KW v3 - its the only drop I would recommend that will give as much comfort as the factory suspension.

Did it and I am happy my wife doesn't complain

Thank for the input-I currently have the dinan suspension (3/4 inch drop) but am looking at kw3 as I need more drop. Hows the ride on the kw?

Thanks, but I already have the Dinan. I didn't want to compromise ride quality so I figured that was safest. Did you like the Dinan ride, look, both?

I did like the dinan ride however it just was not low enough for me. I am real happy with the kw3 setup- the ride is just as good as dinan but now it sits nice and low. If anyone is looking for a dinan suspension for 2012 x6 m I have one sitting in my garage ..
