http://www.nlmotoring.com/XXR-531-Wheels-s/1674.htm

I was searching threw the forum and stumbled on this. I went on XXR website and couldn't find the 531 in 17,18 or 19. What's your guys opinion on this?

They make them in 18x8.5 et35, 19x8.5 et35, and 19x10 et35 in 5x120 bolt pattern.

XXR's are alright wheels. I wouldn't track em, but for a daily driver, they are sufficient. Have seen some issues with the finish on them from the factory though. As they say, you get what you pay for.

I really wish they made the 17s with the bmw bolt pattern. I don't track my car i'm going for the stance look, I would like the get 18x8.5 but there isn't a shop where i'm from that can roll fenders so i'm pretty much stuck with getting 17 .

Rim diameter has nothing to do with needing your fender's rolled. It is the tire diameter, wheel width/offset that determines if you need your fenders rolled.. My car came stock with 205/50-17 tires. 25" over all diameter. A 225/35-18 is almost exactly (within .01") of the same diameter as stock. A 225/35-18 will have the same clearence as a 205/50-17. Having said that... A wider tire will need more clearance though.

18x8.5 et35 with a 225/35-18 tire might just clear on stock fenders.

But, if you are going for that "stanced" look... you are probably going to have to get your hands dirty and roll your fenders. Got to pay to play.

How legit is this website? I find it weird that XXR doesn't have those wheels specs on their website.

NL motoring is really good to work with. I used to order wheels for my TT on there all the time. Super fast shipping and processing and great prices. With them so cheap I'd rock a new set of XXR or Drags every couple months on the TT lol.

NLM has had a lot of trouble recently with shipping out XXR wheels actually. People have waited ages for their wheels.

Hopefully 2013 has changed this though.

Damn, so they look like ass in the larger sizes (18") They look great in smaller sizes though!



looking good with 16's and 15's





nasty with 18's and i'm guessing 19's will be the same :/

^ I absolutely agree. The 18/19" XXR's look horrid. XXR's are based on the CCW LM20's.

Varrstoen also has a CCW replica. They based theirs on the CCW Classic 5. They look MUCH better. Here is a set of the 19" ES7's on a M3. Makes me wish CCW made the Classics in 19's!
