15" or 16" Wheels that Fit UUC BBK

I've searched but didn't find much on this.

Those that are running UUC's BBK: What 15" or 16" wheels are you running? Are you running spacers and did you have to grind the caliper at all to clear?

Do you think I would get more responses if this were moved to the wheel and tire sub-forum?

Well, the issue is that not many people have this BBK. Why? I don't know. I think it's very well made and priced very reasonably! I love mine.

They are priced reasonably and will be pulling the trigger on a set soon. It's a pain in the ass to find wheels that fit a BBK though. I've been sending the template out to different wheel manf. and wheel distributors. Some people are cool with helping me but some don't want to take the time. This sucks... I wish there was a list of all wheels that fit this BBK.

We have a wide selection of wheels, if there is a specific set of wheels you want us to check let us know. We have UUC BBK in stock one & set up for display so we can mount up for fitment and can send you pictures as well.

What wheels do you have in 4X100 and with offset within the E30 range?

Bumping this since I need to find track wheels that will fit over my UUC BBK.

Dforce wheels fit over them with no spacer and are 13lb each.

I have some of the 15x8 TRM wheels on the way to me right now, I'll report back this coming week with fitment info.

In for TRM

I am running TRM 15x8 and also looking to upgrade to track worthy brakes on my S50 swap car. Sub'd to see if the UUC is an option with these wheels.

Looking forward to seeing how this goes, I have ordered my UUC kit and know that none of my 15s are going to clear them as is. If the 15x8 TRM wheels fit ill have to buy 2 sets...

I'd be very interested to see if the TRM 15x8 wheels clear the UUC kit. I sent the template to someone at Tirerack for them to check but I never heard back from them.
