Fitment looks spot on. What suspension are you on and are you using any spacers?

Very nice. I like it when people put different wheels on their cars.

I looked at putting some 128 X3 wheels on mine as I thought they may have looked better/bigger than the 189's. However, I settled for the 189's in the end.

Any fitting issues, spacers required?

Actually looks really good. Different and actually works. Seen a few e46s with x5 wheels and even 7 series wheels and they look pretty awesome...nice to see some on e90s.

Only issue I had thought of when putting x5 rims on would be that they may be a bit heavy? I could be wrong but for some reason they just seem heavier?

Thanks guys, glad you like them. I'll give the car a good wash over the weekend and grab some decent pics.

As far as I know shes the only car in the UK on these wheels, I've only seen two others, one in the US and one in Sweeden.

Ok ok I'll divulge!

Original wheels were:
Front - 8" wide - ET34 - 225/45/17
Rear - 8.5" wide - ET37 - 255/40/17

New wheels are X5 snowflakes in 19in
Front - 9" wide - ET48
Rears - 10" wide - ET45

Using 20mm spacers on the rear, bringing the offset to ET25
Using 15mm spacers on the front' bringing the offset to ET30, could potentially run 18/20mm spacers on the front but I like to see the rears flush and the fronts tucked a little.

The tyres I have came on the wheels and seem to work quite well however they are pretty stretched out, might look at running wider rubber in the near future.

Front tyres are 215/35/19
Rears are 225/35/19 (!)

As far as I know its the only E90 in the UK running these wheels.

Oh and the suspension is standard MSport with H&R springs. Ride is surprisingly not that far from standard, esp considering the tyres.

i think ive seen a white uk e90 with them in grey, could be wrong though.

fitment looks much better on yours though , they stuck out a lot on the other.
