Spotted this X5 yesterday.
It had these amazing stock alloys (which i have seen for the first time).
The car had a temporary registration, maybe they are coming with the new model or they could be optional.
I thought, i will share it with you guys.

They are available on the X5 from a long time.
Have seen 3 X5 with the same rims.

Look good but not that great to me ( Personall opinion )

A better finish like Black or something else would have been better.
Like the design though

Looks like BBS caps!

This design is way too common among 17/18" Civics I feel.

The Civic looks awesome in those beautiful alloy wheels.
I've one question, may be Its stupid but still I want to know what are advantages of alloy wheels over regular steel rims, because it costs really huge.

@gaddiwale

1.Alloys are lighter than steel rims. Result - Better performance
2.Alloys do not bend. Result - Good for tubeless tyre
3.Alloys look better than the steel rims. Result - Good looks!
