Over here in Romania we have a coupe, with x5 wheels , not sure about the tyres used, but he has a 20mm spacers all around, because of the adjustable suspension.

but arent the rears 10 wide. If hes running 10s out back at ET45 with 20mm spacer thats ET25, and that offset wouldnt be tucked on a non M like that. Even at 9.5 wide, ET"% wouldnt tuck like that, so he has to be running 4 front rims.

ah 10mm spacers in the back, from ET45, dropped to ET35 now that makes perfect sence.
ok, no need to call him, i thought u said he had 20mm spacers on the ET45 rear at 10 wide, that would be hard to tuck under the way his is...

very nicely done either way... love it... what stretch tire does he have?

Those rims look ugly on an X5, but on a dropped E46 they are stunning.
