Just curious, do they bolt right up? 

They'll bolt up, offset works, but allegedly you need to grind off about 1mm off the inner edge of the caliper.

Small price to pay to ditch 19" wheels and get all those beautiful 18" tire sizes..

 

The only real debate online is whether or not they'll properly work with the weight of a fully loaded LR4. Mine comes in at around 5800lbs with half a tank of gas and nothing/nobody inside. I think the X5 is close to 900-1100lbs less.

You'll need some different lug nuts too, I'd imagine. If I remember correctly, most LR products use those giant shank lug nuts.

Yes sir, I have those too already.

I like my 19" wheel setup, but I wish I'd waited a bit longer to get my hands on some 18's. Unfortunately the dedicated 18s for these typically run $320-400/wheel before shipping, and you get like 3 options. Other option is to slap on some 30mm spacers and I just don't want that.
