I have installed them but am embarrased to post pics until I install the Eibach prokit springs next weekend. :(

The 295/25/R22 and 265/35/R22 combo lifts the car up a bit and right now there is like a 2.5" gap between the tire and fender.

With 22" you still need to drop the car. Oh well, it is what it is...

I would suggest some Drilled rotor's or bbk.
The rotors are exposed too much and needs eye candy.

OMG you just made me crack up at my cubicle. I just ordered some 22x11 and 22x9 for my car and looked at the prices of tires. 265/35 for front is like half the price of 265/30, and 295/30 is almost half the price of 295/25, considering the life of the tires because they wear out fast. Would it be worth spending less on the tires, or will it rub and make that issue moot?

jacksprat

295/30/R22 rear tire will rub GARUNTEED on the stock suspension. It will also lift up the car even more than the 295/25/R22 since the 30 series tire's overall sidewall is 88.5mm compared to the 25 series sidewall at 73.75mm. Thats a diff of almost 1.5cm or about 1 1/8" inches.

The 295/30/R22 rear tire is for the 300C, magnum, charger or other american cars that fit the 22" rim.

The 295/25 is so expensive because it was basically made just for the 6 and 7series and some MB's to fit 22's.

I'm going to be dropping them on Eibachs, which would probably make the rubbing issue worse. So I guess its 25s in rear, I see you got 35s in front, how'd that working out for you? Can you take a close up of the front rim? Thanks. I have a few weeks to shop for tires while my wheels are being made.

I like them jacksprat:thumbup: . They look good. Infact I was looking at them myself in 22" or 20" as well as few other styles from asanti. I also like few of the NC forged styles. None the less they look good on your car.

I was wondering was there a certain reason you didnot go with 265/30 in back as that is was listed as the perfered tire size by tire and rack. Were you going for wider/more staggered look. The ride with 25 aspect ratio will be slightly more harsh then 30 aspect ratio.


Hey one more thing could you give me an idea of how your ride is with 22" vs the stock 19". I know it will be slightly more harsh but is it real bad or not so bad.

My bad that is a misprint. I am sporting 265/30/R22 in the front and 295/25/R22 in the rear.

NTB: I feel ya. I would DEFINATELY NOT go 22" in the conditions that you live in. Hell, I wouldnt even go chrome it would be a waste cause the road dirt/salt would just eat it up over time. I have seen your car color on 20" black center with chrome/polished lip rims, looks very good. The black would help out alot with hiding the dirt and the 20" rim still sports a meaty sidewall.

Kayani_1: I dont see why TireRack would prefer 265/30 on a 11" rim. I dont even think that is possible. They are probably thinking that you are not doing a staggered setup. Maybe they assume you are going 22x9.5 all around, which would warrant a 265/30 tire all around.

I had that sport package 19" wheel and the diff between them and the 22" is only felt when u hit imperfections in teh road (small potholes, raised pavement due to patching, beveled pavment due to erosion, etc). On the highway you feel no difference. You pick up a bit extra road noise because the sidewall is thin and the contact patch is much bigger, but you would only notice it if you drove without listening to any music. Listening to music at a moderate level easily drowns out the extra road noise the 22's pick up. Taking turns is excellent the car feels like it is on rails.

Also, weight wise, the Asanti 22" with tires is not much heavier than the stock 19" wheel package. I would say an additional 10lbs per wheel w/tire. The AF128 is part of Asanti's FS multi-piece line which stands for Forged Series. As many of you know forged rims are much stronger than cast rims. I believe that Asanti uses an aluminum face plate for their multi-peice wheel as well, which further cuts down the weight.

I also compared the Asanti 22" wheel package to BMW's facotry option 21" wheel package and the Asanti 22" is noticably lighter in weight.

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2


Continental and Pirelli 295/25 tires are about $100 cheaper than the Michelin but the Michelin has the highest treadwear and noise level rating (1-10 scale, 10 being highest) of the three brands who make a 295/25

Jack one more question I had was that is it possible to run a deeper lip upfront as well or is that gonna cause some issues. I mean can one run bigger then 3.5 inch lip in the front.

jacksprat
02-01-2006, 08:23 AM
I dont think so. Widest rim I have ever heard of being put up front on a 7 or 6 is a 9.5" rim. 10" rim might work but it would require a custom offset and perhaps custom spokes to clear the brake calipers. The rear rim that Asanti makes for the 7 has a machined out section behind each spoke so that it clears the brake caliper when the wheel rotates. Yup, the face of the rim is THAT close to the hub, that is how they acheived the 6" lip.

But with money you can do anything. My friend has a 02 330ci coupe and everyone says that it cant fit 20's if he slams the car, only an M3 can fit 20's. Well he paid 5g's for custom 20's to be made by iForged and now he is sitting on staggered 20" rims with a 3" lip and the offset was machined correctly so that the rims tuck inside the fenders after he lowered the car.

does your car have the tire pressure monitor? Cause I was wondering if its still functional on your new wheels?

You have to get it taken out of your stock rims or buy 4 new modules and have them installed in your aftermarket rims

Is the ghetto look actually an accepted style now?
Do those make your car handle any better? What about the extra rotational inertia being generated from all of that alloy spinning? I'd have to say that the extra weight will definitely not allow you to stop as fast.....
I hope that you don't get jacked for your rims when your cruisin' downtown brotha...

Naw the riced out look is actually more hip. As one can see tons of riced out 3 series runing every where now a days. :confused:

I guess when you upgrade 3 series wheels to 18 inch or 19 inch non chrome dull silver rims all of a sudden the extra weight they carry over a comparable 17 inch wheel of same sort doesnot matter. :eeps:


Maybe you forgot to read the part where he said he got 3 piece forged wheels. Dont let your hate for chrome finish blind you brother. ;)

I totally Agree, the guy at the shop told me 22's would ride rough so I decided to go with them. Everytime I walk up to my car I am reminded how much I hate the wheels. 22's is the only way to go. The factory rim actually looks bigger than mine. Anyone want to buy my rims. I have a set of niche f-18's staggered. I'll hook you up for real, I just need to get rid of em....

If you get 19's then you end up looking like this budget baller right here with his innertube looking side walls.:p Those are 19" Asanti AF120 on that Li

Congrats on the rollers, and 265/35-22 are really SUV tires, but they work for the 300c / Magnum guys. 265/30 and 295/25 are specified for the e65/e66.

The lowering will make things much better. Enjoy
