Man those 7 series wheels look to die for, I've perosnally seen them on a black 645 coupe, looks sick. 21 a big too big for my liming, 20 is the best size without compromising with ride quality and performance. The black wheels look good too

Rain flaps look out of place. Your the first. I've seen with them.

I agree with irfan645 20" wheels is optimal for performance and looks all day, but out of the wheels shown in your photo shoot the 21" wheels look the best! As for the rain/mud flaps they look awkward...

I was about to say the same thing when I saw the pictures. Even though the rims looks good, those damn mud flaps are very distracting.

I never noticed that everyone else is running around with no mud guards. I rock them, but only the rear ones...


BTW, the 7 series 21" wheels look hot up there.

I really love those 21" 7 series wheels ... how are they weight/performance wise ?

I always worry when going with new wheels but if those 7 series are reasonable as far as weight I would definitely consider them.

They are Beautiful !!!

Black 22s look the best. Hands down. I'm highly considering powder coating my 22s to get the same look.

Stock wheels are always the best. I have had bad experience with after market wheels.

I like the 7 Series wheels. I agree that the mud flaps should definite go and also that 20's look the best. I choose my 20's because they were sporty, yet subtle at the same time and not too flashy.
