    BBS RC Refurbished

    Just thought I'd post a few pics of my recently refurbished BBS rims and new centre caps. Just need some new tyres and they'll be getting fitted

    Too true, I am going to fit either Yokohama AD08's or Toyo R888's as going to be used more on the track than road use. I will post some more pics once back on the car.

    Good choice of alloys, what width are they? 7.5s or 8s? and what finish did you go for on the alloys?

    Here's a pic of mine on 8" wide versions, ET32 with 10mmF/15mmR spacers.

    They are the 7.5's but running 25mm hubcentric spacers on the rear and 15mm spacers on the front. Got the standard 17's on at the minute and they are looking rather wide! They are finished in an alloy silver with silver fleck lacquer. I originally was going to go for a gun metal grey colour but thought they would look a bit dark and the new bbs centre caps wouldn't be noticed quite so much. These stand out more and should match my ally wing mirrors nicely when fitted.

    Cool, good stuff, post some pics up when fitted. I got mine powder coated in plain silver and lost the original shiney finish, but I had to do something, as they all had light kerbing on them, which does my head in!

    Great answer

    Not much out there that can beat those two at the moment for a track/road/summer tyre

    Mine were originally a shadow chrome finish with audi centre caps (which are now for sale inbox me for details) but couldn't get the same style in a powder coat. Nothing worse than a kerbed wheel! Sure mine will be marked sooner or later! :-/
