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.

A. Thats a super brave wheel choice. Cant wait to see the finished product.

B. I know your excited and everything, but you should not put you head under the car if its only supported by that jack.

C. From what I see in the pic, that rear fitment looks killer.

Pelon,
As much as I disregard extreme mods and/or oversized wheels, I can humbly say that I am totally sold.

Not quite sure exactly what your main objective is at the upcoming Bimmerfest re-union but those wheels are all business.

Waiting time is killing me im not patient at all lol.
Do u guys remember thread couple days ago that got deleted? "big boy wheels or shoes" or something like that guy bought the rims and most of us hated and he couldnt handle criticism and got mad. I just want him to look at these rims thats what i call "big boy wheels"
hurry up bro put that stuff all together and show us final result.

He actually told me the fitment right now is so on point that I dont need to camber it, but im looking for that slant on my rear wheels to set off what I was trying to achieve in the first place -"VIP".

I hope I get a positive response like im getting here. So far its been very positive but I know how the euro community is on stuff like this and I know I might get mixed opinions on my car.
