Possibility fitting X5M wheel on a non M?

Hi, I would like to know if i can fit a set of X5M wheel on a non M? I heard that the hub size is different. will a hub centric ring work? or re-drill is required? Any other difference.

Thanks in advance

Cheers,

I had a set of X5 loaner rims when I had my X5M 20" rims powder coated. Seems like the reverse would work. Might need different TPS's.

Search on X6 wheels on X5. You will need to have the rear wheels professionally machined as the X5 rear wheel has a larger bore than the X5M/X6M/X6 rear wheel.

or you could jsut buy a spacer that adapts the wheels to fit from ecs tuning. just go on the website during business hours and use their online chat feature and tell them what you need to do and they'll find it for you
