Close, but not quite the same- the pic you posted looks like less mesh on the rims than the ones I'm looking for.

I have been waiting for someone to sell a set of those, too. They would make for some nice winter rims. One day, I'll get lucky at the junkyard.

Hi there, I've got a set of BBS 15". The only diff bet mine and the pic is that, If the mags in the pic was 15inch mine would look alot bigger because it doesnt have the big dish so its actually looks much bigger but with the same design

You are looking for the BBS RS, not the RM's (which are pictured), and the RS's are extremely rare here in the states... good luck on finding those...

Ha those are mine!
Eric Bramlett from BBS told me this: "The style of these wheels is the RZ . The part # is RZ 320. The size is 15 x 7 with an offset of 24. These are aftermarket wheels."
Good luck finding them...i have yet to see another set of them.

Oh ya....sorry dude they arent for sale either.
You could get some 14" BBS BMW wheel from the E30 Bimmers. The 15's on the E30's are 5 bolt pattern.

Like everyone said those BBS are hard to find. An alternative would be the Ronal (ACT) LS wheels. They are similiar in design with the BBS. They are inexpensive too. I wqas gonna get this for myself.

off a E30 BMW like someone said they have the right bolt pattern 4x100 but they will be 14" if you want 15" like mine you need to get them off a g60 corrado but they will be hard to find.

Hey I like those... if the BBS RZs are too rare, I think I could go for something like that. Just checked TireRack and Discount Tire and they don't carry those though.
Know of another place that does? Are they pretty cheap?

Dude, I love your wheels! That sucks they're not for sale, but quite understandable! I checked out your thread on them- it sounds like they were pretty popular in the late 80s and early 90s... why can't I find a set? There must be one like that around somewhere..
