Why not just try find some used BBS center caps/rings? I think it looks tacky with honda center caps.

$250 + $130 = $380. not a bad deal. I would be concerned over the bbs's not having the bolts that mate the mesh to the outer rim though.

They should be welded from the back side regardless. You can always take em to Wheel Techniques and get their opinion on safety of not having the bolts. They might even have some bolts on hand if you need them.

For real BBS wheels and new caps, $330 is a steal.

I had BBS wheels that I sold cheap because they were ALL bent. I got them for a steal. I kinda wish I spent the money to restore them. They looked amazing.

I doubt they are BBS wheels. Real BBS wheels have a threaded center caps, they don't have a screw to hold them in, and the faces don't have a cut out for the valve stem.

Also, anyone who knows what they have wouldn't sell real BBS wheels for that cheap, unless they're in REALLY poor condition.

those are definitely not bbs rs wheels

they look more like konig remember's

either way, it's a good deal

only problem you will have is getting the original caps, those honda caps would look super cheezy

If you like how they look, go for it.

Honestly, if you drive your car hard at all, you don't want fancy wheels anyway! I've destroyed 3 sets myself...


Also, I just clicked the link for the first time... I don't know for certain, but I don't believe BBS makes wheels with a universal lug pattern. That's USUALLY reserved for the cheaper wheel makers.

Ok, this has been bugging me for a couple of hours now. I think i have figured it out though. These wheels should be called Ronal/ACT LS Mesh, or maybe called ACT split. they are possibly very rare too and are supposed to be forged. you can also find the center caps for these wheels by doing a search for Ronal LS.

the craigslist posting is already expired, but bbs rs's / ACT split meshes wouldn't be welded from the back. If the owner was running them without bolts, theyre def cast knockoffs from somewhere. Konig, ESM, and a few others make/ have made knockoffs of RS's.

BBS does make a few Cast basket weaves, but as far as I know, all of their bolted wheels are multi-piece, and all of their cast wheels are boltless, (ex: BBS RZ from the corrado, and a number of meshes from old 3/5/7 series bmws)

you can find multi-drilled BBS RS's depending on the generation, and spec when ordering. most places when you special order wheels, you can special order flat mounting pads (which allow you to multidrill 3rd party) or order in an 8x100/114 or 9x114 drill pattern

there should be a sticker on the inside of the wheel, or a stamp on the face that should point you in the right direction. most BBS wheels have a stamp under the centercap around the lug holes somewhere.

If its a cast wheel, not having bolts wont matter, the bolts are just to give the 3pc "look" on knockoffs.

either way if the condition is good, it can still be worth the moneys. just gotta make a judgement call. most of the konig remember setups went for 5-700$ as far i remember. so i'd value most at 3-400$ depending on condition.

I don't think that this would be a good deal now, for knockoffs, I have to get the bends fixed, get bolts and have to travel 3 hours to check them out, I'm better off waiting for a better deal, don't cha think? I appreciate the help but I don't wanna spend so much money on something that isn't genuine....
