    Default Photoshop rims on X5M

    Hi guys, I need some help.

    I am confused about which one of the following two rims to go with and would like to see how they would look on my vehicle individually if possible. Will be going with 20" if that matters.

    Rim 1

    Niche Citrine Bronze



    Rim 2

    Niche Citrine White



    A picture of my car on which I'd like the photoshop.



    Please let me know if you need better pictures at all. I would like to keep the ride height stock and everything else stock. Thank you so much for the help!

    Niche has a pretty good configurator for their wheels; not familiar with BMW's, so I randomly picked a 2013 X5M: http://www.nicheroadwheels.com/configurator.cfm#!lang=0&year=2013&make=31&model=213&submodel=1117%3AOE%2020%20WHEELS&size=22%20Inch%20Wheels&go=1&body=1&tab=wheels&page=1&color=5710&wheel=5307&wheelimage=23581

    Thanks for posting that man but a couple of issues.

    First they don't have the colour of my car in the list (Monte Carlo Blue) and second they don't seem to have the rims in the colours I mentioned on there for some reason.

    I'm a fan of the blue/white combo personally but the gold would look sick too and make your life a lot easier. Those rims in white would be brutal to maintain

    I'd say gold too, but I can't help but think that those wheels would look better with no wheel gap.

    All I can picture with the white wheels is another blue Subaru with white wheels.

    When I though of the gold wheels on a blue car, the first thing I thought was all the Subaru's with that colour scheme

    So Subaru's run both? Blue and white and gold? lol

    Screw that, I don't care either way. These are gonna have winter tires for the time being. I am just trying to visualize it so I can make up my mind about which one to go with.

    True enough. They are both so common.

    I can do this for you. Got some stuff going on tonight after work, but will try to remember to check back in later to see if anyone took you up on this.

    If you don't get any hits in the next day or two, pm me and I'll take care of it for you.

    What size rims are currently on the vehicle?

    I am looking into springs as well but apparently they make the ride really shitty and for coilovers at 4-5k it's just not worth it...for the amount of time I'll end up keeping the truck for lol.

    You should be looking at it as more of a percentage of vehicle price , not a raw dollar amount... Adv.1's and coilovers or gtfo

    Yah I was going to chime that some ADV1 or HRE or Brixton would be the way to go to match that baller SUV. So sick and lightweight.

    I also thought the weight was going to be going way up with Niche but apparently not compared to those stock M wheels... I am a bit surprised that 18x8 are 28 lbs and 20x10.5 are 35lbs. I was expecting them to be well into the 40s.

    Need to buy some winter rims for my X5M also. How much are the Niche wheels roughly for 20"-21"?

    Where are you buying them from?

    Oh I never saw you mentioning winter ris oops. My bad then. I figured you were going to switch those 20's over to winter and bump up to a 21 or 22 summer. Either way post up some pics once you decide, would be cool to see

    Ok, here you go man. I didn't spend a ton of time - especially on the white (which I just converted from the gold). The supplied pictures also had the angle a little off, so they might be just a tad off center.

    Personally, I think the originals look the best... though they are obviously not very custom. If I was to pick one of these, I'd certainly go with the gold.... Subaruish or not.
