  • 17" BBS RS302 5x120 17x8.5 / 17x9.5 FULLY refurbished inside and out

    These are BBS rs302. 5x120 pcd.


    I have the parts here to build one of three sets. All three sets will fit without spacers. Some, a little bit more aggressive than others.

    Possible configurations.

    17x8.5 et21 squared with 2" lips.

    17x8.5 et21 / 17x9.5 et21 (these will look like the popular rs212/197, but will poke less)

    17x9 et15 / 17x10 et15 (this is an aggressive set up, but will work with a light roll) 2.5" and 3" stepped lips.


    Price is $3500

    These are much nicer than the rs212, as they have an 8mm shallower back pad, which allows for more outboard room, and it actually makes the wheel lighter. I test fit these on my friends e30 m3, they clear the brakes up front, as well as the struts. No clearance issues.

    Wheels are completely refinished inside and out, all lips have been mirror polished. Hexagon caps are mirror polished, OEM bolts are prepped and chrome plated. Inner barrels are stripped and powder coated. Faces and waffles are powder coated as well. And lastly, the JDM red caps, are in great condition.

    I spend a lot of time making sure these wheels are done right, I use a chemical to strip the coating, instead of media blasting that could pit the aluminum. The parts are than glass blasted to etch, and than sanded to help with adhesion of the new coating, and than my guy actually does a few more small things to help with adhesion. As well as careful masking of parts that are to not be coated. The hardware is given the same kind of love.

    These wheels are 100% modular, so please ask me if there is anything you would like to change ie. caps, hardware, finish. You name it.

    Here are a few pics I snapped yesterday.

    These are set up as 17x8.5 et21 and 17x9.5 et21

















    Here is an example of this fitment, on an e30 m3. (scroll to the bottom)

    These in my eyes, are the most desirable BBS RS ON EARTH, as far as the centers go. They are rare to find, and not cheap when you do. I actually traded a set of rs212's with new barrels and lips for these, and than I had to go out and source (4) lips for them. Its not cheap to build a set of wheels like this.

    Hey Paul

    Have you tried these 302 centres at the front of an M3 E30?
    could be very close with the brake caliper as these 302 centres have a thinner/shorter hub on the backside then the 212 ones....
    Personally i never have tested that so it would be really interesting how much space is between the spokes and the caliper-

      Sure did, my friend.




      This is the 9" et15 up front.

      This is, in my eyes, (9/10 et15) as perfect of a wheel/tire fitment, as you'll find. In my opinion, of course. Nothing crazy, no poke, what so ever, but literally every mm is used.

      These have an 8mm shallower back pad, but thats the beauty of it, I can then run 1/2" larger lips all around, without changing things up much. Only 4mm more poke, with 1/2" larger lips. Im just using up more inboard room. There is not much space in between the face and the caliper, but my friends pads are new, so that should be noted.

            the last pic with the 9".
            would you be able to do a 9" front and a 9.5 back or 10 is that possible or not enough clearance with a 10?
            just love that staggered look!!

              Yes, of course.

              I would recommend that, actually.

              9" and 9.5" would look ok, as long as the rear lip is 3". But you have the inner room, so why not go with a 10" rear, Ya know?

              This set up is MADE for big lips.

              9/10's would be the ONLY RS set up that would go on my e30 m3.







              If I had one :-(
