    Not the 'look' I was after as I was hoping to snag the dual spoke ones, but alas, these star pattern were all that was available.
    Now to source nuts.

    BTW, not being a BMW owner, I didn't realise how modular and interchangeable BMW bits are between models. Like Lego.

    Do they have the same load rating as these BMW wheels? These have the right load rating but not sure of the ones you have. Note in my pic that the standard LR center fits the wheels.

    In truth, I am fairly sure.
    I only snaffled them yesterday and dropped them straight off to have the old rubber removed.
    I won't be able to tell until I can give the inside a good scrub.
    I was unable to clear away enough grime at the wreckers.
    The chap at the BMW wreckers seemed to understand that I wanted the higher (is it 1050 kg?) rims and still pointed to these from a large, large stock pile of rims.
    They weren't the 4 on top so I am confident (ish).

    I'd welcome the knowledge of what code to look for?

    Damn!
    I just looked at those Gorilla nuts!
    Approx $38.00 for 25 (very happy with that!).
    Approx $58.00 for shipping to Oz! (Not so happy with that!).

    So near $100.

    Maybe I'll look around Oz first lol or use a US Domestic shipping Company.

    Cheers

    Been there done that. You can't get them here. Commodore lug nuts are the same pitch and diameter, but due to the wheel design don't engage enough threads to be legal (AFAIK)

    I ordered 24 nuts, as the postage is the same cost and you have a few spares.

    They are pretty solid, though my impact wrench has started to take the corners off them (I use the correct socket size) so its now breaker bar to loosen and tighten

    Ralph I have seen BMW X5s with both wheels so I think you should be fine. I think the early X5s had the wheels you late and the mid vintage ones had what I have.

    Re the nuts - I could not find anything suitable locally and got the gorrilla ones - yes postage is a shock but there is a bit of weight in the package. $100 is still a lot cheaper than getting LR nuts locally - and of course they are not safe to use with the BMW wheels.

    Cheers

    Yes, I think so too 😉
