They are the offsets of the & Series Alpina B7. They are in the agressive side of things but do not rub in any way and do not come out of the fender at all, they are pretty flush. I am very happy with the fit.n Here are the offsets.

Front: 25mm
Rear: 41mm

I have some Alpina 21" classics from the older 7 series sitting here and just wanted to see if it would be possible.

The sizes are 21x9.5 et23F and 21x10.5 et28R
I tried the rears on before lowering and they bolted up and stuck out just a tad (hoping the camber from lowering will push them in a little) and the fronts wouldn't fit on the hub, the caliper was hitting the spokes.

Yep, when I was doing research to see if I could fit the Alpina wheels, I read of a member of the board that tried it too and it did not work with the wheels of the previous B7. Sorry. I am sure you can sell those for good money and get the new Alpina design. I actually like the old design quite a bit too and had them in my old E24 635csi.

That looks awesome and soooo classy! Great job! I cant believe it ended up being juuust right with the ACS.

In your case I wouldnt bother to get the M-Sport front. It looks very classy with the OEM.

What tire spec?

This is not the first time I look at your setup, i love how classy it looks with those Alpina! I can't help myself to get a set of those for my F10. I know the recommend tire size is 245/35 and 285/30. Do you know if it can go 255/30 and 295/25? Or any other size? Want to give a bit more meat to protect the rims! It took me almost two months to find the set and ship all the way from US to Hong Kong

Actually, the combination you mention give you less "meat" than the one I suggested. The height of the lip of the tire relates to the numbers you ported. The second number is the percentage of the first number that results in the height of the tire. As an example a 245(mm)/35(%) tire results in a lip height of 85.75mm. The one you propose, a 255(mm)/30(%) results in a lip height of 76.5mm. The taller the height, the more protection you have in the wheel and the better ride you get. Performace is better with a lower lip but there is apoint where the lower ratios give you worse performance. I think at this point we are passed the ideal lip height for performance. I don't think there is many racing cars, if any, that run 25 section tires.

I hope that helps.

Those Alpinas really are a classy looking wheel. They look super heavy though. But I like them anyway!!!

Neat, I love the wheels and the way that the drop made them stand out.
