I like the satin finish so much better than the gloss, i think I may re-do the 21's to satin.

Love the black wheels. Looks great. Are you running spacers? I just put a set of 214s on my wife's X6 with the same tires and they don't look as aggressive as these. Same offset and everything. Looks great

Yes. 30mm H&R spacers in rear and 20's in front. Makes all the difference in the world

Do the wheels protrude out beyond the fender wells? The fronts look flush from this angle but the rears look like they stick out beyond the fender well.

They do not. They are perfectly flush. This pic may show that a bit better.

That looks great with the spacers, and the satin finish!

Love those tires too, driven many E70s with those in the snow.

The wheels look great. I have a lease so I was going to Plast Dip mine.
I also like the badges you have. Where did you grab those?

My M arrives on Monday. I NEED tires ASAP, going to be used by a hockey mom. My 13 year old plays 100+ games a year which means a lot of time on the road. Our weekend trips are 60-600 miles one way. I need to get tires ordered Monday AM. Stuck between Scorpion Ice and Snow 275/40/20 F and 315/35/20 R or Nokians WRG2 275/40/20 all the way around. Any advice would really help. WI winters, travel IL, MN, IA, MI, OH

The Nokians are probably a better snow tire. The Pirelli's are better on highway. Both are great. All that driving, I'd choose the Pirelli's.

Thumbs up Love the Satin Black

Love the satin finish on your wheels. Any additional info that you can share? Are they powder coated or painted? Was there a particular color code?

I am ordering an AW X6 5.0 with the same wheels and definitely want to do this.

Thanks in advance.
