      tire sizes? spacers?

        So I'm not running any spacers as that would just push out the wheels. Tire sizes are a bit tall compared to what other people run but those are all I had at the moment and they have decent tread on them. I'll probably go with 205/45/16 front and 225/45/16 rear next time. Fronts actually fit without any rolling, the rears needed a slight roll, and by "slight" I mean only needed 2mm's of clearance. I did however give them a full roll so I can run beefier tires down the road.

        This photo is the rear fitment.

            BBS RS waffle help

            Hello BSS Yodas! BBS RS nube here. Need your wisdom...

            I got this set of 4 16" BBS RS's at an incredible deal ($500!)


            For my project


            But I'm missing a centercap. The part number for the waffle is "09.24.028" but I haven't found a matching cap with that part number on CL or Ebay.



            Question: Can I use another part numbers for the waffles? (Searched but couldn't find a definitive answer about part numbers)

            Please advise.

            Cheers!

              Last year I found some BBS RS003 somewhat local so I went for it. Before I bought these I had been planning on buying some Nogaro Silver Euro Weaves so I decided to restore the RSs in a similar fashion.

              They were in really great condition, so I decided to refinish the stock lips and not spend more on wider lips.

              Refinish the bolts in silver or black?

                  Is the brushed look similar to the stock machined lip? Just got a set if RS211ís that need refinishing but I want the lips to have stock machined look and clear coat!! Hoping that its possible!

                    That will get you pretty close to stock. I recommend a satin clear... not too glossy for the stock finish.

                        Question for all your BBS experts, which faces are the largest faces for the 17" wheels, basically the 13" center for the RS. My main problem when I had 16's was it had the 12.25 face and the bolts rubbed against my BBK even though the wheels cleared, so I had to space them further out. I know they made a 13" face but dont know which models those are.

                            I have seen that list, so I am to assume if it says 17" it has the 13" face unless it says otherwise?

                              Yes, but double check the last column. It may say "16" center (doublestep)" which means that it is a double stepped 16" face.
