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.

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.

Adam gettin’ down on the track!

Many celebrities are known for thier car collection. Jay Leno has whole warehouse full of unique cars. Tim Allen and Frankie Munoz have thier collections. Jerry Sienfeld as a nice Porsche collection. Now what sets Comedian and host of “The Car Show’s” Adam Carolla’s Car Collecion Apart? He Collects Datsuns, yes the common man’s econobox maker from Japan, Datsun. Don’t get him wrong, he does have Lambo’s and Ferrari’s, but he has some nice top notch Historical Datsuns.

 

Adam Carolla Camel GT Datsun 280z s30

What a beautifully restored s30

 

“Scattered throughout the room, bathed in natural light from large windows, we found a Datsun Camel GT pace car built by Bob Sharp parked next to a Paul Newman / Bob Sharp Racing IMSA 300ZX. A few feet away, sitting next to the tool cabinets with its rear wheels riding on rollers to ease movement around the shop, was a custom Datsun Roadster 1600 racer with radically-flared fenders in bright orange. (Adam hasn’t raced each of these, and he may never, but he currently participates in his share of on-track competitions in his stunning Bob Sharp Datsun 610.)”
