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.

Tire advice?

So one of my tires just blew out... turns out one of the back tires is measured at 275/ 40/ r15 and the tire on the other side is a 245/45/ r 15. what tires do you recommend for a 2004 745Li?
Also, what should be the backtire measurements vs the front tire measurements? Thanks for the help mates!

The tire sizes should be on your driver side door panel.

Are you sure you have 15 inch rims on your 7 series? If so there not stock. Look at this site.


Stock tires are the 18 inch rims. Their fitment guild will tell you what tires will fit your 7 . From 17 to 22's
