Wheels are AC Forged 22x9 22x11, tires are Lexani 235/30/22 275/25/22 and I'm lowered on H&R kit front springs and rear links, wish I was linked all the way around for a proper drop up front.

Looks really nice. Love that blue in the sunlight. The rims are sick too. They look like my forgiato concavos. The lips on yours look a little deeper than mine tho.

Personally, I do not like the look of the 22 inch rims. As a regular driver on our horrible NJ road system, I have to believe that the 22 inch rims with low profile tires presents a real challenge.

I had that blue on my e65, gorgeous. And yes, be very careful on poor roads. In Chicago we have the worst potholes in the country I believe. I replaced the tires on my 21 inch rims at least 10 times in one year I believe. 10! It's like having a rubber band around those rims.

Yes, when I saw you car in your sig I'm like damn looks good, most of these wheel companies copy styles from each other personally HRE was the first with this style but I wasn't gonna spend HRE money to bend them up screw that

Different strokes for different folks, if your gonna rim up a 7 22" is the size to have with a drop, 21" if you feel like cracking the bank on tires and 24" if you are part of the who has the longest dick contest

But yea NJ roads are bad id like to see somebody daily a car on 22" wheels

Replaced 10 times due to bubbles and flats? Or worn?

I agree. It is a subjective decision as to the rims. But I know the NJ roads, they are really bad. From you pics, it looks like you are in the North East part of NJ where the roads are at their worst.
