  • BBS RX 223 16x8 ET15 rubbing?

    will these wheels rub?
    i will mount 225/45 Toyo Proxes R1R on them
    i know there won't be any issues on the strut side (2mm more clearance than stock)
    i am more worried about the fender side 28mm further out that stock 15's
    but i know a lot of members have used et15 on 17 and 18" wheels

    here is my photoshop of how they will look on my car
    love the way they look

    I don't think they will rub. I have 17"x8.5 et15 wheels on my car and I have no rubbing even at full lock of the steering wheel.
    I also don't think they will fill your wheel wells like the photoshopped picture shows. You need to go up a size to get that look!

              That's good that they don't rub. I'm running the same setup with RK007 and due to my suspension setup I rub pretty bad.

              So in the future when you are looking at suspension work think ahead on that.

              For now, your car looks good.

                I'm not doing anything crazy on the suspension front. I'm much more stock OEM kind of person

                            Sweet.

                            I just got these



                            What's odd is I typed BBS RX223 in and it only gave me the Show me your Alpine Weiss thread where GK has his.

                              I had a set of these but damaged two, if you ever need 2 spare rims, get in touch
