    Pretty hard to be honest mate as you will have too use adaptors which will add a min of 25mm. Don't forget the rears are 10j to start with.

    Is it hard to come by them? Read about some other alloys that we're 10j on the back and they said try and get another set off 9j front to put on the back.

    Will that be any different or is it the adapters that make them poke out?

    Hard to come by 10's you mean? Not really mate as they where staggered on the x5 from factory. If you could get 9s all round then it would be better. The dub lads generally like poke thou lol. Google it there are plenty of pics with these on mate see what you think. Also what tyres are you going for a bit of stretch or not?

    Those will be a real job trying to squeeze under the arches judging by getting 18x9 rims fitted to mine.

    Good luck.

    No the adapters hard to come by?.And obviously I dont want them tucked away just nice and filling to the arches..I don't want monster truck wheels so would be around the 235?maybeI may settle for the 18s then :/

    You will need major camber setting on the rears as i have 9j bentleys on mine and they are right to the edge of the arches, plus you will need to run 215-35-19 tyres on a 10j rim they will be so thin that the rim will probably crack on impact with a pot hole, worth a try if they are the right price

    Although they are 10J, you need to take into account of the ET, as that will be the biggest decider where the wheels are in the arch.

    Sorry to revive this thread, I am looking at some wheels... and they're 10j rears.

    Main question is - are they too big. I do not want them to stick out like in the pic above. Flush with arch is fine.

    They are staggered 8.5j Fronts an 10j rears.

    It's a no no I atm have 8J's ET43 on mine and I would say it's in line with the arch however I have also tried 8.5J ET35 and that I would say is the very max which not only would work but looks good anything wider then that would look stupid and won't fit.
