X1 19s or 20s wheels

Well I finally bought an X1 for my wife!

now I'm just thinking if I should get 19s or 20s for the car.

any suggestions?

You mean wheels ?

It's really up to you ... or her ! She will be the one driving it.

I do respect your tastes, bu I for one wouldn't be caught dead in such a car with ridiculous 20 inch wheels

Having said that, would be nice to get pics of the X1 ....

I would go for 18" instead of 19" or 20". In my opinion anything above 18" doesn't look good on the X1 because of the small tyre walls.

thanks for the info actually she doesn't really care what I put on the car. Aslong as she has something to drive its oK>

I'm in think with the road conditions in Taiwan I might op out of 19s

pictures for sure.

Congrats on the new purchase..

I think 19"s fits X1 well alone with some short springs to lower the ride abit. Anything beyond that would seem a little over kill....

hello my fellow Taiwanese brother.

I'm thinking of making the X1 into a larger version of my car.

Hello buddy,

Are you the one with super charged M3? If so there will be a long way to go making a X1 larger version of your car, haha..

I drove a X1 on 19" wheels, made my teeth rattle . I cannot imagine what 20" wheels would feel like. Maybe you should ask her
