Lowered Vans get me very excited. Although pictures of this Volkswagen Vanagon have been on the net for a while now on
Airsociety.net, Ive only seen it lately and can’t stop looking at it, I am intrigued. It is bagged, and the complex suspension
has been majorly redone, even the engine has been raised to accomidate the new height.
“What’s keeping this car both lifted and lowered at the same time is a set of Air Lift 2500 fronts and 3500 rears. Dual
ViAir 450c compressors sit neatly out back hooked up to a 3 and 5 gallon tank. You read right, dual tanks. He also raised
the 2.0L ABA OBD1 Turbo motor up higher in the engine bay to give him better clearance when aired out. Talk about dedication!”

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.
16×10 BBS RS Rear Rim, just enough lip a really nice fit!

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”
Front wheel profile, note how close the front lip
is to the ground.
Rear wheel profile, thats almost 5 inches of lip…
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.
SSR Formula Mesh – Stepped Lips
17×9 +10 ~ 3.5″ lip
17×10 +0 ~ 4.75″ lip

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.
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
