Default Thoughts on BBS RK

Sup guys. Looking for a new set of rims, and saw an ad over on bf.c for some BBS RKs. The wheels are in good/great condition. I was wondering what you guys thought a fair price would be.

I could buy them brand new and have them shipped to my door for $1275 total. Or, I could buy used from this guy for $950 shipped. Good deal?

Also, they're 17x8 et40. I'm planning on lowing with Bilstein/HR Sports. Will I have issues? (Just checking because I was under the impression that the et35 fit better...)

Thanks!

$950 with decent tires on them would be a fair price.

These are in millersville. They are for $600 for the set of 17's with tires and they also come with another set of rims and tires. I was ready to jump all over them, but ended up with the one peice style 2's.

I'm pretty much sold on the RK's. Here's the question now: the seller's wheels are used, and they're ET40. I've heard BBS stamps the ET into the wheel, but he's said there was no stamp, and he measured that himself. No stamp/cast=problem?

Second, shipped, his wheels are roughly $235 apiece. New at tirerack they're about $318 shipped. The new ones at tirerack are ET35 too.

So...318ti.org weigh in! Spend ~$80 more a wheel for new? Also will 5mm ET make a huge difference in fitment?

Thinking about 225-45-17 tires? Good? Better idea?!

if you're going to be spend over $200 on each rim, adding $80 for each rim to be sure you're getting what you want doesn't seem to bad

If you can afford the $80 each, do it. You won't regret your decision later.

will tirerack's ET35 wheels work better/worse than the ET40? I think my stock 15" steelies w/ hubcaps are ET46...

225-45-17...will this work?

et35 will look better imo it will bring it out towards the fender more but not so much that you will have rubbing issues.

but 5mm isnt much either way

I agree with the midget. I would saw come by and you could check out my offset, but I don't have my car back yet. I am running a 20 offset. I am going to need a slight fender roll, but the stance is much more aggressive looking. Personally I would go with the 35 vice 40, but in the big scheme of things, you are talking a mere 5mm...

Thank guys. I think I'll bite the bullet and pay more for the brand new wheels in ET35 from tirerack. They come with new lug bolts too, which is nice I guess.

Trickie when do you get your ti back?
