Kinda weird, but kinda good too

19's? I'm surprised that they fit!

concave wheels have always looked good on the E65/66 & F01/F02! They look a tad small but look great since you can't see a lot of the brake rotor/caliper!

visalusbeamer 09-18-2012 06:45 PM

I think it looks sharp those look great on there

I like them!

Prev-gen M5 wheels are classy.

:thumbup:

There are advantages of having less wheel more tire, bigger side wall, improved ride comfort. And the wheels are good looking, I personally like your setup very much.

Forget them ! They make your beautiful car look old! The M5 rims came out in 2004 and they are 19 inch ! choose 20 or 21 inches to bring out the size and beauty in your 7 ! Cheers! H

Nice rims but very dated now.

Appreciate all your comments, right now i have stock 19inch, i saw these m5 wheels online for a grand so i thought i would go give them a try. these fit good but there is a huge gap between the tires and wheel well, i can get bigger profile tires but not sure to go through with the deal. Worst part is that just trying the wheels for 5 minutes messed up my alignment, not very happy with that.

leave the 19 inch you have ! they look great ! if you change go to 20 or 21 ! Cheers ! H

They Look Awesome, in my opinion......

WAS the car still jacked up when you took the pictures as there seems to be a large clearance between the Wheels and the Wheel Wells?

I think they look good, but there does seem to be quite a bit of gap.

No funny enough, the car was of the jack and its gap was huuuge! one reason might be the tires were lower profile than standard on mine.

found this online
they are called TSW MAX
How do these look? i was thinking they look like more of the OEMs you can get from bmw

ChrisF01 10-05-2012 12:19 AM

I love my TSW Donington's, they have a OEM feel to them. Exactly what I wanted.

I do really like your wheels! i might just get those. but do you know any other good 20inch wheels? i wanted that sort of businessman/mafia look even tho it sounds weird, nothing too flashy

I want to buy a set of take offs like the ones on your car. What is the model number? thanks,

They're BMW Style 252, they came on mine as well. If mine wasnt a lease I'd sell them to you :rofl:

Looks good but they are old 5 wheels

SFbay 10-09-2012 12:07 AM

I'm almost sure m5 wheels have different offset number! So it does not even feet your car

f01driver 10-09-2012 12:45 AM

I didn't know the style 252 wheel was forged and I was a bit shocked to see that the list price for the 252's; they're more expensive than even the 20" m sport wheel.

ngraz617 10-23-2012 02:56 PM

I think they look great.
