I have been curious about this myself, as I was looking to put larger tires as well, however Italian road laws are picky about wheels extending outside the wheel well. Post some pics of the Akphil80.

KNR Springs

I used the KNR springs on my old 2008 x5 and the front end would dip dramatically. I don't recommend these as they change the handling considerably. I went back to the STOCK BMW springs after 2 months with the aftermarket set.
