I still didn't get an answer about what Brand rims and tires should I use, that better quality and not going to bent after every little pothole?

Even good rims bend. BMW rims are speed rated. Not all aftermarket rims are. Try asking over here:

P.S. Most 3 series drivers are switching to Michelin Pilot Supersports tires, but our cars are more performance oriented, and most 7 drivers seem to like Continentals.

You could always go back to your dealer.

The parts department usually has some options on display.

I don't have a RWS. Dogs more often than not will actively seek out my car to urinate on it. This is a common problem with non-RWS vehicles sadly.

What about my original question about what king of rims do you guys recommend for BLUE 2014 Bmw 750i? Or this thread about RWS now? Also, if it's not a big problem, could you guys tell me what price range should I expect when buying dissent rims and tires set?

Lol I used to put expensive time on my cars ( 8000 per set ).

Now I stick with factory if I don't lower the car. Your 19' looks good but

Might just get 20' M sport? The 21' factory 5 stars looks killer too but

very easy to get bend. If you really want aftermarket try Vossen wheels,

They are good quality and looks good on 7s. Think 3k per set is the range.

I recommend that you stay with the stock 19 inch rims and tires.

They look great and are very functional/reliable.

From experience, I can tell you that you are inviting aggravation if you move up to 20 inch rims.

Aggravation = bent rims & bubbled tires.

If you want to change the rims, stick with 19 inch.

As I said before, go over to the parts department of your BMW dealer and let them show you what they have.

My dealer has several rims to select from.

Since I have never shopped for non BMW rims, I can not make a suggestion, but I am sure the other guys can.

I have a 2014 750ix M Sport. The rims are 19 inch, not 20.

Need Help with wheels!!!

OP, you are asking questions that have very much to do with personal taste and preference.
Some people like polished silver wheels, some like chrome; some like black matte powder coated wheels and some like orange power coated wheels. If you catch the drift, the answer lies in what YOU like.

There are two options you can go with; OEM or aftermarket wheels. Then you have 2 piece forged, 3 piece forged, monoblock etc.
You have already made the biggest decision on purchasing a 2014 7 series. Please pick a style of wheels you like, slap them on and just ENJOY your car. Just pick something YOU like.
If you need some ideas, just search for "bmw wheels" in ebay.

Love that exterior color. Would that be beige interior or saddle brown? Please don't tell me it's black.
Wheels looks nice. You need an H&R drop now.

Quite a variety of cars in your neighbourhood...Toyota Corolla, PT Cruiser, GMC Jimmy, old Lexus...
