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.

24' rims

Do anyone think 24's would mess my 07 750 up.

I have 21s on mines and they seem big enough to me. Anything else would be a little big to me. Click image for larger version

Be prepared to have more maintenance done and dish $$ out on tires every so often. I would also look into having a big brake kit installed if you're going that route. If you're doing this for self pleasure or so-called "street cred," I'd highly discourage it. Now if you are doing for car show purposes, by all means go ahead. These cars weren't meant for so much wheel size....22's are barely a comfortable ride in my opinion.

22" tear up the fender liners. 24" will not fit without modifications. Big chrome wheels ruin the ride and handling anyways. Keep factory wheels.

You should trade it in for a suv if you want huge wheels.

But on stock suspension with 25 series tires you shouldn't have problems. Maybe minor rubbing on huge bumps. But it'll look retarded.mi,assume you're from the south where big wheels are the thing to do..

This is mine on 22s rubs front wheel wells whe when going up sidewalks...... Too low for speed bumps... Lol my point with this being. With some minor mods you can make anything work
