Post pics of BBS RS/RM on R5 GTT
« on: 03:20, Mon 10 October 2011 »
Hi everyone

I'm looking for some BBS RS replicas for my R5 GTE, I will probably go for silver, but gold is tempting too. Im wondering if 15" is the best size. What do others think? I actually sell 17" for bmw e30 at my work, but they will be too big and the offset is 27 and I've heard that 35 is maximum.

some pictures that I found.. looks stunning in my opinion. gives it that 80s charm  :D

BBS RM, 15"s?

--------------------------------------------------

BBS RS - is this 15 or 16" what do you think?

alright mate, i woulda said 15" (personaly) are the way, u can lower em nicely without having to cut arches (i think)... 16/17' can look nice because the do fill the wheel arch up, but they might rub when turning to much and bumps, but its a bit jump from 13 to 17'  i chose 15's ftw any way.. see what other people say though  :D
My cars only as fast as the people pushing it

chillin... chillin....... chillin.........boooOOOOOOST

I would love a set of genuine RS wheels.... I'd only be able to afford them if I sold my car and then saved for a while! Haha.
Lenzo BSX are the next best thing in 15" I'd say.

Are the ones on the white 5 the Lenzo ones? The lips don't look right.
I have 17'' reps on my Bora and they are a pain to keep clean, but they look nice when they're done  :D

My friend has genuine 15x8 RS's on his wild Caddy, they're lovely!
