    LM wheels

    Hi guys, I know this isnt the right forum to post, but i thought id let you guys know that I have a set of wheels,8.5x18 5x112 with an offset of 35 which I bought in error. they were supposed to go on my rs4, but couldnt clear the calipers.
    they are still brand new in box. Iv been told that they would suit new A3/S3 and MK5 Golf passat etc
    The style, well they look IDENTICAL to BBS Lm's, except that these are one piece wheels as opposed to 2 peice LM's.
    You wouldnt be able to tell the difference..

    sorry for the poor quality pics.



    Im basically wanting what I paid for it minus the duty as these are from the states. all in I paid 850 including duty but im willing to let it go for 700.
    These are brand new boxed..
    fo further info, pm me or call on 07984 88 22 79.

    cheers

    the et for the A3 is between 45-55 so they wont fit

    they will be perfect though for the latest A4's

    They will fit, but will be flush to the arch rather than in..
    Same as if you were to have et45 wheels, with 10mm spacers.

    I have stated that they look like the lm's. you cant tell the difference by looking at them.

    Shabs, can't see the ET rating being the same for a mk5 golf and a passat (which is normally the same as an A4).

    Here is a comparison with a BBS RC.

    But they do look nice.

    Good luck.

    I was told that it would..well I know the pcd is the same. And It shouldnt be too hard to adapt. I fit one wheel on the rear of my rs4 which requires et20, but using spacers, they fit flush to the arch. The front calipers were the problem

    Reduced to £625 which in my opinion is a bargain for these wheels.
