Mein Auto: '06 750Li Alpine White
Need opinons on these 22" wheels

I just recently purchased a 2006 750LI in Alpine White...Love it!! Now I'm ready to get her some new shoes. I'm looking for a silver/brushed center w/chrome lip. Or maybe gunmetal w/chrome lip? I haven't seen gunmetal on a white 7 series. NO all chrome wheels.
Need some opinions on these wheels. A friend of mine are selling these Maya Maya MRS-style 22" off his 6 series. They should fit, right?
Front tire size: 245/30ZR22
Rear tire size: 295/25ZR22

How do you think they will look on my white 750Li? Too sporty? I'm going to lower the vehicle with H/R springs.

Thank you in advance

Those wheels should fit. You might need some hub centric rings. I think they'll look fine especially if the price is right. Those wheels look staggered, what width are they...9" 10.5"???

Those wheels will look very nice. I haven't really seen those before on a 7.

They are ok. I think they will go nicely with a roof spoiler.

I like mesh wheels too like the Asanti 120s but can't find any used ones for sale.

Some serious cleaning and a drop of your 7 and they will look just fine.

I'd be interested. Specifically the mesh-style wheel you picked up. What kinda of pricing are we looking at.

The Maya brand was one of my favorites before they were discontinued.
I think the MRS are sort of aggressive for a luxury barge but it can look good with a nice drop.
I would get them if the price is right.

Yeah, I'm torn...I think I just might pull the trigger and get'em. Get the "luxury barge" lowered and maybe throw a roof spoiler on to make her a little more aggressive. I'll post pics when everything is done.
