Is it 17 or 18 in wheel?

Hi,

I am shopping for X1 now. I am trying to figure out if the dealer BSing me or not. He says that the car has 18in wheels that are standard and not an option. Here is the picture from the description:



Could someone tell me if it is indeed 18 inch. Is it part of the package or stand-alone upgrade.

The dealer is far away so I can not drive over there right now.

Thanks

Tire Rack can be a good source to look up oem tires and wheels.

It appears as though those are Goodyear Eagle LS 2 tires which are one possible OEM tire/wheel on the base 28i. Just look at the tire size itself on the sidewall and it should say 225/50 R17 if that's them. The 17 at the end is the wheel/tire size.

This wheel is 17" off a No Line car. Is this the exact car you are interested in getting or did he just snap a random pic? Both the X-Line and Sportline come with 18's, although different wheels. The M-Sport also has 18's std and 19's as an option.

This is picture from the Dealers website. I can't get there right now. It is too far away. They told me that it has 18 inch wheels. But something feels fishy. I just wanted someone to confirm if it is 18 inch. The shape does not look right though.

Tell them to send you a copy of the vehicle's invoice or a pic of the window sticker. Something that will confirm how it's equipped.

I believe that is the style 318, which is 17" x 7.5".
