A good 90% of the time everyone who wants to tune their car comes up with the idea of installing a new set of alloy wheels. Even before an increase in performance by means of chip tuning or lowering, new aluminum rims are statistically the most popular tuning utensil. Understandable because the standard rims are often not necessarily ugly but very much trimmed to mainstream optics and of course not very individual. What could be more obvious than looking around on the shelf of ADV.1 Wheels to see if a chic alternative to the wheelset installed ex works can be found? The owner of this BMW X5 M50D F15 did just that and swapped the standard rims for an ADV.1 Wheels wheel set of the type ADV12 M.V2 in 21 inches.
The rims on the BMW X5 M50D
If you take a closer look at the rim selection of ADV.1 Wheels then we will understand why! ADV.1 stands first and foremost for quality, there is also an appealing selection of different designs and as you can see there was something suitable for the potent Diesel X5 M50D. Of course we would like to show you the whole thing with pictures and have therefore decided to introduce the car to you. In addition to the visually appealing and well-fitting alloy wheels, the X5 has received a few other modifications that we only know from the photos, unfortunately we have not yet had any technical information.
No matter the main focus of the car is clearly on the already mentioned 21 inch wheelset which, as already mentioned, certainly does not miss the standard rims and is an absolute asset to the X5. I think the car immediately looks more dynamic and sporty, which can never be wrong. We took a closer look at the car and made a few comparisons with the production version and were able to determine one or the other change to the aluminum. What we have learned directly from ADV.1 Wheels and have recognized ourselves, we provide you in a summary as usual below. Should you notice any further changes, we would be happy if you post them in the "comment box", we will then add them to the post as soon as possible.
