7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Question Rims question

Hey everybody! I have a quick question on rims. So I know as far as good quality "classy" rims go, if I was to move away from OEM rims I would go with Vossen rims. I like the styles and everything and I see a lot of members on here have them. Has anyone had any good/bad experiences with Beyern rims? I like most of their styles and they seem reasonably priced compared to Vossen. Any information on these rims would be great! Thanks!

Those are the exact rims I really wanted!!! I just don't know if I want the 20" or 22" and if I want all chrome or brushed aluminum. Do they ride really smooth?

what does the wheel have to do with riding smooth?
it is tire thickness and suspension not wheel design.
you guys running some huge rims on those cars.
I have 19" on x3 seen 21" on the x3.
a 30 and 25 profile would affect the ride. smallest I been and would go on a tire is a 40. I even think 35 looks gay if stretched why not just ride on the rim?I dont own your model bmw just ease dropping in on subject .my e36 had 45 and my e30 m3 has a 40 profile.The new 19" I just got for my x3 had 35 profile It was barely a tire to me he had them on his e46 m3 .I put a 245/45/19 on that AC Schnitzer type IV.
If you ca put BBS or my favorite AC Schnitzer I do that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So do I!

The Beyern wheels are excellent cast, one piece, hub centric wheels at a good price. They have great fitament, and are one of the only one piece wheels available in a 22x11. My favorites are the Mesh and Multi.

Thats good info thanks! can you swap the beyern emblem out for the bmw emblem? Do you think that would look dumb? I'm not trying to claim they are something they are not.

Get the brushed! Chrome is not a good look in most wheels.

The 20's will look like shlt so def 22.

20 with a lip is just too small for this car. Only 20's I like are the OEM 149's and quarterto8's old MRR's

Your car us going to look amazing. I am glad you have the sport package with black trim. I think with white its going to look really good, and the ride height is already right.

Thanks for the support man you've been a great help! When I get them (and I will) I will make sure to post pics and shout you out! One more thing though, what does staggered rims mean and what are the tire sizes I should have on the front and back? Would Beyern already have all that figured out when I tell them my make and model or do I need to specifically give them the info? Thanks.

You would hv to specify staggered or not. Staggered are wider in the back, I'm running the following sizes
265/30/22 front
295/25/22 rear

Lol.. I know what you mean.. Get some good tires, tires are where you'll get the smooth ride and protection for your rims. I have TOYO Proxes tires.
