H&Rs/ rims on the wife's 750..

I have been looking for some wheels for my wife's 750. She did not want anything chrome. I was going to get her some Iforged rev, but as careful as she is, curb stratches will happen and I wanted a wheel that I can get fixed here locally. I put on some H&Rs and found these on ebay.. I got them from DTM motorsports in CA. I like the look of the wheel and even being 22's, they balanced perfectly and ride smooth. They are 22x10.5r and 22x9.5f. Tires are Pirelli Nero 295/25/22r 265/30/22f. Nice lip, not too much bling. I also like the going with a 10.5 rear instead of a 11" because the tire "fits" the rim rather than having the "stretched" look. What do you guys think?

Did he state if there is any rubbing on full load in the back? And if tread wear is decent I think you should go for it

If you don't mind me asking... How much was the whole package for those wheels without the shipping?

I love it. Kind of looks like the 760i wheels that I think it's a great look.

I'm a fan of the chrome look, but that is a nice looking mofo. Props.... I still like the look of chrome, but those look pretty cool. Bling Bling!! Is that a vette in the garage?

Thanks Ace, that's a 550 Maranello. The Vettes are in the other garage, the red one on the lift is a '01 ZO6 Lingenfelter 427 and the blk one on the bottom is a '06 ZO6.

Good choice with the silver wheels. I'm not a big fan of all chrome either.

The car looks great with the drop!

If your car has TPM, did you transfer the sensors over to the new wheels? If so, how did they match up with the new wheels?
