When I saw these wheels for the first time, I immediately thought about Texas, its flag and its nickname: the lone star. For me, those wheels look exactly like stars.
Upon further research, I discovered that they are called X 35 and come from a relatively new manufacturer called XIX wheels. For those of you interested in getting a similar look, you should know that they measure 20x8.5 inches at the front and 20x10 inches at the back and have machined faces with black windows.

The model is a 2007 BMW E90 328i, a car that used to be powered by a naturally aspirated 3-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that made around 230 HP and 270 Nm of torque. Pretty low numbers, compared to the current F30 328i that makes 245 HP and 350 Nm out of a much simpler 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged unit.

The car was done by the guys from AudioCity USA and, unfortunately, it doesn't hail from Texas but rather from California.
