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.

Asanti lovers

I just came back from a local wheel shop and the dealer showed me a set of Asanti's that he just got in. They have a 7" lip!! Before I saw it I thought it was going to be cheesy and over the top, but instead I actually like them. He said Asanti has worked out all the kinks and will guarantee that these rims dont rub whatsoever.
They somehow managed to move the face (flat surface a little more outward) allowing the extra long lip without it needing the fenders modified.
Ill try and take pix next week and post them.

i think you would need a 5in front lip if you got a 7 in lip in the back to make it look good.

Yea its like Dropstars "phat lip" technology. They move the face of the rim outwards, but then bow the spokes inwards where it meets the lip, giving extra inch for the lip.
