Rims off an X-drive car on my 2011 550i?

So I was curious to whether I can take the rims of a F10 X-drive car that has:


19 x 8.5"

Style 351 OEM wheels

I drive a 2011 550i so I am just curious as to whether or not I can fit those on my car. I am leaning towards yes, but they aren't staggered, which isnt that big of a deal to me.

Yes, they'll fit your 550i.

Would you rather take those or a set of UP720 wheels?

I really can't device. I like the OEMs but I kinda want staggered wheels....

Honestly, If I were to get aftermarket wheels I'd get 20s instead of 19s. The 19s you posted look good but the F10 body is large and makes them look smaller especially without a drop. IMO your better off trying to source a set of staggered style 351s as they will be better quality than a handful of aftermarket wheels and will fit without issues. Let me find a set of wheels that you'd probably like and edit my post.

Edit: Now here's something that you might like:

Saw those as well and have them on my watch list, but that would require new tires as well. The car just got brand new 19" tires put on not even 2000 miles ago. Plus my budget right now for rims is $1k-$1500. I just want to try something before I get the 20" versions of them in the spring when I have more cash on hand. I went ahead and bit on the black 19" 351s for $930 shipped to my door. I am getting H&R springs so that will drop the front by 1.4" and the back by 1.3"....
