Need 22" Wheel/Tire Advice

I'm looking to purchase a set of 22" wheels for my '06 750Li.

The wheels I'm looking at are 22x9 +25 in front, and 22x11 +35 in the rear.
I plan on lowering the car with Eibach Pro Kit springs before I install the wheels.

My question is..... are these rims appropriate and if so, what size tires should I run with being as close to factory ride and with no rubbing, etc.?

22's are fine check out True Forged wheels they are sponsor and who i went with, the tire shop that put on my continental dws tires said the wheels were very nice built wheels top quality unlike the ones they had made mostly of a line. It does take 6-8 weeks to get them but totally worth it every person that seen them loves them!

my front 22x9
my rear is 22x12 i believe

Offsets are wrong. You can easily go 22's, lowered with no rub

I wouldn't do 22" unless they are lightweight wheels... Heavy wheels will make your car slower & will wear on the brakes like mad... I have OEM 21" on my 745. Had 22" on my 745Li & it was like boat anchors.

My 22s are a lot lighter compared to the oe 21s. If you go with a good quality, light weight wheel, then you shouldn't loose any performance

Or add some CF wrap to it ...It will save weight...
