Aftermarket wheels for the XE S

Post by dts » Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:59 pm

Hi guys,
I've been recently acquired a 2016 XE S with the 20" Propellers.
I've been looking into getting a set of 18" rims for winter, but with no luck so far. I know this has been extensively discussed already but I failed to find a definitive solution for S on account of the different sizes front and back.
The type approval of the vehicle says the following sizes are acceptable, which are all the asymmetric type (wider at the back).
Does anyone have experience with any aftermarket wheels that come in both sizes?

The dealer prices are simply ridiculous, and given how meticulous the German police can be, I'd prefer to stick to the approved rim sizes...

7.5J x 18 CH 46.0 / 8.5J x 18 CH 55
7.5J x 18 CH 46.0 / 8.5J x 18 CH 55
7.5J x 19 CH 45.0 / 8.5J x 19 CH 55
7.5J x 19 CH 45.0 / 8.5J x 19 CH 55
8J x 20" CH49 / 9J x 20" CH59

Why not get a set of genuine R-Sport 18" rims? These are staggered by default with 225 front, 245 rear.

That's right, I didn't realize the "Templar" comes in staggered... Thanks!
It's time to hunt for a set of used ones then.

The attached file should help, for winter tyres 18 is definitely the best bet if you want it staggered.
