I don't think XIX is good brand. The style is OK though.

Being honest...I do not care for the wheels at all. I think BMW offerings all look much better, and OEM wheels fit the looks, styling and cost of the 7 Series much beter. Sorry!

I'm up in the air on these wheels, can't say yeah or ney. Alpine White would go well with them. If you like them, go for it.

And this is why there are options and we don't all have to have the same wheels.

Frankly, I think one of the weakest things BMW does is design wheels. Outside of a couple (say the M3 ZCP's or our M-sports), there are very few OEM wheels that I like.

We're likely on polar opposite sides even when it comes to the M-sports. No disrespect intended, but I don't care for chrome wheels.....in likely the same way you aren't impressed by my powdercoated ones.

I think your OEM wheels in black look hot and imo look better than most aftermarket wheels.

Out of the two the Vossens would be my choice. I really don't like the first wheel you posted at all for the 7. Just my 2 cents.

Vossen is much better, and they are very good quality cast wheels and for decent price. I wouldn't mind rocking them.

Just saw the Vossen, and I agree with the others, it's much better.

Good choice! Where did you get it from? How much did you paid for the package?

In all honesty, the BMW Style 312 In ferric Grey looks worlds better than the wheels you posted orignally, and also look better than the Vossens in that photo. There was another F01/02 with a set of similar Vossens that looked amazing!

If you like the style of the first wheel you posted, Asanti Makes the AF128 which is a much better looking style of that. I would Also suggest a look at the AF120's.

Arlene, here is your chance to SHINE!!! I would like a "SQUARE" wheel setup i.e.: NON-staggered. Having the front & rear 20 x 9 (9.5) set of rims with matching offset, and of course width. What do you have to offer and what is the offset? Thanks for your time!

Thanks for your question!
Unfortunately, we do not offer any 20x9 or 20x9.5 ; we do however offer 20x8.5 and 20x10!

I will gladly do a 20 x 10 if you can figure out what that offset would be in the front to do a square set up!
