16x9 ET14 205/50/16

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 Process



A little color


Refinish the bolts in silver or black?



Black won









I think Dave's work, from Renewed Finishes, speaks for itself they came out amazing. https://www.instagram.com/renewedfinishes/

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.
