+1. Would like to see your results, as well. I'm looking at doing chrome 95's with spacers on an H&R drop. Don't want to go any larger, as I don't want to change the overall ride. Rode in a 750i this weekend with 22's on Eibachs. Ride was certainly less than expected. Little too sporty for my taste.

Do you have a set of Style 95's yet man? If not, I'm looking into selling mine! PM me if you're interested

To the OP, I'm not positive that they make 19 inch Alpina rims for the 7. BUT if you can find a set with the right offset, go for it.

I just came upon this but I don't know much about wheel fitment so I'm not positive that they would fit:

Sanhonda, help me out my man!

And I know they're 20's and not 19's but the ride quality shouldn't change much at all with such a small difference. OH and I did realize that they don't seem very wide so you may have to run some large spacers.

i hope you guys realize that you looking at cheap Chinese replicas; so the quality is highly questionable to begin with. Do your research before you invest your money on anything i say, or wait little more and buy something reputable when you can afford one.

Thanks much, Suri. Actually, I already have a set of the silver 95's. Wanting to do chrome, as my 7 is not a Sport. So I have the chrome trim. Figure it will match better. You have chrome 95's??

Yes, I realize I am looking at a replica. Though, wheelsandcaps sells a solid option from what I hear on this board. 1bad has reps. And that dude doesn't F' around. So I'm not worried. Thanks for the input, though.

I doubt you will find anything on 19s for the e65. As you may well know, the e65 B7's came with 21" turbine wheels - so anything that is 19" is either 1) taken from another Alpina model in Europe, or 2) replica wheels- and aside from any obvious questions about quality, these would most likely not tailored for the offsets and measurements for the e65 7. I would suggest if you really wanted to do it, find out the measurements for comparable 19" wheels on the 7 and see if you can locate any Alpina wheels that are close to the same specs.

I see what you're saying my man! And they were on my car when I bought it and now they're just sitting in my garage and one is being used as a spare I've got to get rid of them some day, they have brand new Pirelli Rossos on them as well
