BBS RS 16×10 & 16×9 on BMW E30 – Tight Fitment

BBS RS ON BMW E30 16x10 16x9

A Couple of my friends are building a couple of BMW E30 projects, and they asked me how big of BBS RS’s Can they fit under
thier arches? I said 16×10 and they didnt quite believe me. This E30 was the first car that came to mind. I sent them a link to
this car, and now they are looking for similar specs.

These BBS RS are actually C4 Corvette spec running some Adaptec Adapters; 5×120.65 -> 4×100

I like the front rake of the car, makes it look aggressive.

Brabus Monoblock III + Lexus LS400 – An Unlikely Combination

Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400
Brabus is a company known for producing top notch Mercedes Products, notably some really nice wheels. The Brabus
Monoblock III was and still is one of the nicest wheels produced by Brabus; they were and still are a wheel that is hard to get. – Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400
Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400
This set of 20″ Monoblock III’s made their way on to this 1996 Lexus LS400, an unlikely combination. The wheels
had to be persuaded to fit on the LS by way of re-drilling and adding spacers . – Brabus Monoblock III on Lexus LS400

BMW E30 M3 + SSR Formula Mesh = FPURISTS

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3
BMW E30 M3 ON SSR Formula Mesh

Iconic car… Check
Iconic Wheels… Check
Rare Evo parts.. Check
Fat Lips… Check

Say what you want, but this car is hot! Due to it’s “Stance”, this car has caused some mixed heat on some internet forums. Obviously
this car is not daily driven, but it just looks right. Not only is the car built, but the owner also took his time and built the wheels.

“So I am sure most of you have seen these. I spent nearly a year buying parts/pieces/wheels to make the set you see here. They
are the ONLY set I have ever seen on a BMW with a 5×120 bolt pattern, let alone with stepped lips ”
– internet user “KarlSpackler”

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.

SSR Formula Mesh BMW E30 M3

Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
Wow!

I do agree with the owner, not only do you 17″ SSR Formula Mesh barrels, but you hardly see 9 or 10 inch wide Formula Mesh Barrels
as well.  This car has the perfect blend of Euro and JDM.

Wheel Specs:
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip
17×10 +0 ~ 4.75″ lip
5×120
72.56 center bore
White powdercoated faces
Black Anodized Hardware

Tires Specs:
215/35 Falken 452s front
225/35 Yoko S.Drives rear

 

I’m not sure if this car had a full feature anywhere, but if it does please let me know so I can add it here.

BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

Porsche 911 on BBS RS

I was watching a replay of the Barret Jackson Auction Scottsdale 2011 on Speed Channel the other day and spotted this 1985 Porsche 911 wearing a nice set of one of our favorite wheels:  the BBS RS. This spiecimen of RS appears to be of the 16″ variety, and color coded to the Porsche’s hue of red. They also sport full height caps and look to be at around 10″ wide in the rear. This Porsche sports a Slant Nose front end and isn’t bad either. – BBS RS Porsche 911 Cabriolet on Barrett Jackson Auctions

The Porsche ended up selling for almost $35k
