  1. Thanks all, Just to close out. 20" Range Rover Vogue wheels fit the X5 E53 fine and look OK. Just needed a new set of wheel nuts (RR to BMW convertor set M14 x 1.5). Wheels and nuts worked out about the same price overall as refurbing to original 17" was going to, and got a decent set of tyres in the bargain. Probably going to have to find a spare next. See you.

  2. Thanks Dave, Yep, Centre Bore and PCD match the X5 wheels. The offset is ET40 on the existing wheels and ET47 on the RR wheels. As far as I can see 19" aftermarket wheels for the X5 are spec'd at ET48. Does this mean ET47 is OK? Also any opinions on looks. Pic of X5 with existing 17" and of proposed 20" wheels attached. What does anyone think? Gary
  3. Note to self, typo in the heading is never a good start. Should of course be X5
  4. Hi, I'm a newbie so forgive me if dozens of people have asked similar questions. I've had the car a few months and its been great so far, so thought its time to tidy up. The standard 17" type 130 rims are great but have lived a hard life by the coast and need refurb quite badly. Looking at costs made me consider upgrading size. For not a lot more layout i have seen a set of Range Rover L405 Vogue 20" style 5002 rims and tyres. The seller does not think they will fit but I have had quick look at the www.wheel-size.com site (which seems pretty comprehensive). This seems to say the Range Rover is probably similar in size. Centre bore 72.6; PCD 5x120; Lug Nuts 14x1.5 are exactly as the X5. The X5 17" offset is ET40, but a 19" could be ET48 according to the wheel size site. The Range Rover seems to be ET47. In my mind this seems to imply a good fit for purpose, like for like, replacement. I am not mechanically gifted in any way so any advice please. will they fit or am I missing something? On another purely aesthetic point are they too much and should I stick to the essence of the original design? As another aside will it affect ride unduly? Thanks for reading. Gary Lee
