    Re: Black vs Stock wheels X6M (pls advise)

    reginos:

    The best wheels would be something similar to those on the  Porsche Turbo.2

    Basically silver but with dark grey or black accents. My opinion

    Not only yours! I had the same thoughts. Smiley

    Re: Black vs Stock wheels X6M (pls advise)

    I much preffer the stock wheel as well on this car. Maybe the best compromise would be the stock wheels painted black BUT with the rim left unpainted

    Carlos,i like also the black rims with the exterior lip unpainted,give a classy touch.

    The only thing is that is not easy to find a bodyshop that is able to do a good ROUND work... and and oval lip looks not good

    Re: Black vs Stock wheels X6M (pls advise)

    intouch ,  ever consider of painting your 21" wheels in silver  -  or , even better , andodizing them in , very nice , satin silver finish .

    intouch1:

    changed back to the stock M whels on my X6M as i am still not sure as to what looks better.

    in terms of ride the stock wheels being 40 and 35 are more suited to our roads that 35 and 30 on the black 21'.

    so black or stock ?

     


     

    This is the best looking wheel for a white X6 IMO, 21" style 215 in grey:

    Re: Black vs Stock wheels X6M (pls advise)

    temm, imo they don't suit the car at all. black wheels look good on a white 50i because of the black plastic applications. it makes for a unified look.

    the M does not have those black plastic parts therefore, the wheels obstruct the sense of unity.

    as for th grey 215 on th white car above, i find truly horrible....

    Re: Black vs Stock wheels X6M (pls advise)

    I still think that a very dark shade of grey looks good on a white car but not silver or grey.

    Btw: I'm so happy I'm getting the OEM X6 M wheel for my X5 M, the M300. It just looks great.

    Congrats, RC..

    For me the choice would be gunmetal, very classy.

    Still have my X5, coming up 3yr old in August but still happy with it even though its that slow old dog of a 3.0Ltr petrol engine..Also, I have the 3rd row seat option and find them great. Most probably going to exchange her up for the new 2011 M5, we shall see..

     I have that wheels on my white X6, the color is called ferrit grey. The wheels are perfect, you don´t see any break dust and they are easy to clean. They are not to dark for the white color. I like it, mine are 21", the next time I would take 20".
