Thinking about getting these rims, should I?

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!

I like them!

Prev-gen M5 wheels are classy.



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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.
