    I got these wheels for my 90 M3 a while back...

    a: Does anyone know the wheel name/model?

    b: These won't give me any fitment issues, right?




    thanks!

    RZ506 looks like Style 5 or a E28 M5 wheels.
    Who knows where I'll be, changes from day to Continent.

      The guy I got them from said they were an option on the 91 750, but he wasn't even 100% sure on that. According to the M Registry, the E28 M5 had a 7.5x16?

        That's right Joe forgot they were only 7.5 wide. They do look like my E38 wheels. Mine are Fundo's though.

          E38 wheels have a different style cap and are et23.

              Agree with CourtM3, should be a e28 either M5 or 535 wheel in that offset. It doesn't look like BBS made the wheel for BMW as a factory option.

              It was marketed under BBS's own name, since it doesn't have the BMW part numbers on it and by judging the center cap. Maybe circa 1986 or later.

              Old BBS wheel information is hard to find. Markus may know as he responded to a BBS wheel I was trying to identify.

              Is there a slight raised lip from the transition of the mesh to the rim lip???

                The manufacturer date was stamped 95, Maybe for an E34 ?

                  According to the M-registry, the M5 had a 16x7.5?

                  There is a slight raised lip at the transition from the mesh to the lip (maybe 1 mm?)

                  The "95" stamp suggests that it may have been made in 95? (though possibly an older model).?

                    The M-registry is probably refering to a factory M5 wheel at 16x7.5. BBS may have changed the offset for their aftermarket wheel.

                    I have a similar BBS RG wheel in 16x8.5 (aftermarket)

                    If the "95" stamp is an indicator of a 1995 mfg date then I would think this wheel was for an E38 7-series. Typically new cars don't run low offsets < ET35.

                      Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"
