Whether you are a casual guy looking at tuned vehicles or a big fan of everything that falls under that large category of aftermarket parts, you undoubtedly heard about Vossen Wheels in one shape or form. We have an opportunity to showcase an Alpine White BMW X5 with a set of their wheels with the VFS2 line, a multispoke design that looks good on a wide number of vehicles.
These VFS2 wheels are part of their VF Series wheels. What’s that? With VF Series wheels the flow forming process maintains the integrity of the design while improving grain-structure of the aluminum, creating a stronger, lighter, and thinner forged-like rim barrel.
Flow forming is the answer to the market’s demand for lightweight wheels that are more durable and enhance overall vehicle driving performance. They follow the quest from owners everywhere, answering for a collective desire for a wheel that is not only aesthetically captivating, but built for form and function.
Wheels are installed on a BMW X5, one of the highest selling cars in that segment. The BMW F15 is the third generation X5 Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). It’s a vehicle that attracts a widely different owner base, as it provides excellent offroad capabilities combined with a luxurious interior, greatly designed exterior and a wide selection of equipment you can order for it.
Exterior finishes offered for the BMW F15 X5 are Imperial Blue Metallic, Dark Graphite Metallic, Sparkling Brown Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Space Gray Metallic, Mineral Silver Metallic, Jet Black and Alpine White that we can see on this build.
From the launch, it came with a selection of powerplants featuring a 450 hp V8 petrol engine in the xDrive50i and two six-cylinder in-line diesel units, producing 258 hp with a twin-turbo engine in the xDrive30d and 381 hp with a three turbo engine in the M50d M Performance respectively.
In December 2013, further engine options were made available: xDrive40d, xDrive35i and, for the first time on the X5 model, two four-cylinder engines xDrive25d and sDrive25d (with two-wheel transmission). Straight line speed is governed by the choice of engines, but anyone driving this vehicle will certainly govern many possible driving styles which can be attained.
Wheels shown here are sized 22×9 in the front and 22×12.5 in the rear respectively. Combine the multispoke design and fitment that suits the large SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle) quite well, it’s a wheel selection that works nicely with the car in question here.
