It has become a new fad to fit the old X5 19" wheels to alot of cars now but on the 1 you will need some serious stretch on the tyres and arch mods to fit such an aggressive offset but I am certain you would still get rubbing.

Silver F21 M135i - ManBox - HK - Adaptive - BBS CH-R's - 245/35 PSS - Eibach Pro's - BMWP Drexler LSD - TMC Piggyback - GP Splitter - BMWP Diffuser

cheers guys n yea i am aware that serious stretch and arch rolling would be required, luckaly im used to it from being in the vw scene for a while having stretched 165/45 r15's on 8&1/2 inch rims which is even 2 me are eye-opening 2 look at but im not scared lol

i think from that test fit picture that they look perfect, the right diameter with the right amount of stance

i think these shall be on my shopping list in the neer future :)

Sorry but they just look awful! If BMW designed them for a X5 then they are meant for that vehicle or similar. I could understand the 3 series wheels for a 1 series however am X5 is just mental.

Good luck tho!

Really which Dubs have you owned? I too am from the VW scene....only earlier this year sold my last mk2 Golf! Miss it but prefer the creature comforts of modern cars. Although its amazing how reliable my 20 year old VW was!

Its called being individual which was what modding is all about - doesn't have to always be about practicality....at the end of the day if we all wanted practicality we would be running SE spec cars with their soft suspensions and 16" wheels! :shock:

I personally think if you can get the X5 rims to fit (maybe 4x fronts) then they will look very nice! look immense on that silver 1er.

That having been said I wouldn't go that crazy on my 1-er as its my wifes main mode of transport, where as if it was mine I would toy with wider rims than the standard tried and tested widths and offsets.

I completely agree with u 200% on both quotes ;)

Origionaly i started with a mk3 polo or mk2f as purist call it :p
I loved it 2 bits was burgandy slammed on mk2 golf gti steels, but with it bien a polo it set fire 2 its self twice :/ and eventualy the top-end barings went so it ended up scrapped :(

Then i had a mk2 gof 1.6 driver, put big bumpers on it, coilovers, dz excluziv's and converted it to an 8v gti which was pretty nippy and never let me down not ever the 1.6 mk2 engines are troopers :) but sadly i ended up sliding into a cleo due 2 realy bad weather and the most stupid bend ever known 2 man

There the only 2 vw iv owned but just about all my friends have a vw which i help them with nearly every day lol
