I tried to find a pic that I saw once but what if you just paint the inner parts of the wheel and leave the face polished?

EDIT: Something like this.



Had to throw this up since we're talking about blades

Yeah, they are "Style 57" and they should fit all E53 X5's 2000-2006 with the 3.0l and the 4.6. WILL NOT FIT 4.8l X5

i assume that is due to M14x1.5 lugs instead of the M12x1.5 lugs most others have perhaps.

33mm all around. I really want to find oem bbs vette wheels. I like the 20 bolt ones but are extremely rare. They are 17's. Would look cool refinished.
