Big Wheels & Huge SUV’s: BMW X5 xDrive40e Equipped With Vorsteiner’s V-FF 107 Wheels!
With the Tax Exemption Laws on the shores of Malaysia, the BMW X5 xDrive40e Hybrid is one of the most popular Executive SUV’s on the market! However, as we brought the X5 out for a test drive, we felt that the drive was packed with body roll and floatiness, thus, filtering out some driving pleasure from the mix…
The Bimmer X5 paid us a greeting on a bright sunny morning. Value packed with an M-Sport package the X5 supposedly performs much better than other stock X5’s! However, the stock 19 inch wheels is the only thing holding it back from being utterly brilliant. As such, the time has come for us to refresh the design of yet another X5 hybrid!
Being utterly honest, the 19 inch rims, it spoils the look of the X5. The 19 inchers sit deep within the fender with a gap so huge, you could probably park another X5 between the fender and the wheels! With an issue like that, the owner, having collected the Bimmer only 2 days prior to this write up, decided that the first thing to do was to swap out the stock wheels for a set of aftermarket wheels. That said, after stepping into our showroom, the massive amount of wheels we have in-stock not only took him by surprise, but gave the owner another challenge, which was to figure out which set of wheels he would like on his X5!
After browsing through our displayed products, the wheel that caught his eye was a set of Vorsteiner’s all-new V-FF 107 wheels! The dimensional mesh design which features 10 tapered and aggressive Y-Spokes look breathtaking and the X5 wouldn’t ever be perfect without this set of Vorsteiner alloys! Despite being 22 inch wheels, jumping from 19’s, the V-FF 107’s are a whole lot lighter than the stock 19 inch wheels! The Signature Vorsteiner Titanium Machined finish of the V-FF 107 matches the Metallic Space Grey body colour of the X5, and gives it a dual colour look! As far as ownership costs go for tires, the step up in size at 22 inches results in tires which are significantly cheaper than BMW’s original run flat tires.
After the installation commenced and ended, the owner took it our for a short test drive and instantly he felt the massive difference in both handling and performance! With the wider wheels resulting in a wider track, the X5 had significantly less body roll! Less weight would also result in a lighter overall vehicle and as such, the vehicle pulled much faster from standstill and drove even better through the curves! Finally, being a family SUV, the new Vorsteiner alloys paired up with the Pirelli Scorpion Zero tires 295/30/22 delivers even better ride comfort than the stock 19 inch run flat tyres!
