Question: How to achieve 20" wheel look on 19" wheels? Pics?

I spent the last 1/2 hour trying out different Search patterns but now luck.

My 2011 X5 Vermillion Red came with 19" wheels. I just added flares so the X5 is really missing that broad shoulder look. I'm thinking of going 20" staggered but am worried about the ride.

If I were to stay 19", what are my best options for that broad shoulder/hunkered down look?

Does anyone here run this setup that could provide feedback and pics?

Thanks in advance.

just add spacers to any OEM wheel style. no point in buying aftermarket 19" rims for an x5 unless your buying a winter set


gotta go 21" and up.

With the 19's I'd say 12mm.. up front and 25mm or 30mm in the rear (it's a 5mm difference). H&R is the way to go.

http://www.turnermotorsport.com/BMW-...l-spacers.aspx Here is where to buy, they are great people.

make sure you pick the right ones the fitment is listed in the description, all x5's are the same except for the x5m.
