  • FS: 17x8.5 BBS E26 Magnesium race wheels

    set of 17x8.5 wheels
    front wheels 2.5" outer and 6" inner offset et25
    rear wheels 3" outer and 5.5" inner offset et13

    front wheels will require a small spacer to clear brakes but if you run 12mm spacer you'd have a square setup of 8.5" et13 all around.

    lips are being polished at the moment but as soon as they are back I will put rims together.

    BBS silver centers
    new hardware
    new gaskets
    polished lips
    barrels are original (raw)

    asking $3000+shipping
    this is the last set of 16" e26 wheels that I finished for a frends car. 17" will have a taller wheel halves.

        BBS e26 is a motorsport 3 piece race wheel with magnesium casted centers. BBS RY is a 2 piece road wheel.

        I am not sure about the exact weight at this point because I have to bolt them all together first. but the 16s in the picture above were stupid light.

            no not the same as the picture you have, the center looks identical to this and it mounts head of the rim halves.

              Please, update us when you get the wheels assambled/finished. I would really like to see them.

              I guess the centers are used, hopefully those won't have any hiden/starting small crack. Also these are only recomended for track use right?

              Weight?

                I will update once I get them put together. We check every center when its blasted before it gets painted. I've been using BBS motorsport cast mag centered wheels on the street on my summer cars with no issues what so ever. Most of people that buy these wheels from me end up putting them on their restoration period correct cars, to give them that authenic vintage look that you just cant achieve with modern wheels, and I've never heard of any issues. I guess there might have been couple of accidents when wheels got stressed cracked in the history of BBS, but these wheels are not made out of glass, and are not fragile as some may think.

                              beautiful wheels! can't wait to see all of them put together.

                              Why the rubber valve stems?
