BBS style 5 wheel

Post by emac » Wed Jun 24, 2020 2:55 am

I have a non lowered 87 M6 red in color. It currently has a later model 16" wheel with some high profile tires. Ride is good, but the look is a little too cruiser for me. I am thinking of going with the 17" BBS wheel and 235/45/17 tires.

My question.....do you think the gold centered wheel or the polished silver wheel looks better with a red car? I am leaning towards polished. I think the gold may be too much.

This is the style I am talking about. Gold like this or polished? Thanks!

Like the wheels, not sure about gold inserts on a red car though.

I don't understand why I like gold and silver together on BBS wheels - I'd hate it in any other context!

I am very tempted to go gold and silver, like this chap has done:

Put off these with the non-bbs bolts though - yuk! Very much like the RC090 for the front (offset of 20, just right) and RC009 on the back (offset of 10, just right to fill those capacious arches a little more!)

Colour coordination is not my thing (just ask the misses!) .. I reckons for a red car then a set of nice polished silver / chrome wheels would work nicely.

Now those gold centered BBS with the red insert, dark car could wear them? They do look nice and retro and something different.

My set of RC090 have gold bolts fitted that are corroding and need to come out. Need to get £150 organised and source a replacement chrome set and swap them out.. slightly reluctant to do so as they are bound to start rusting again within a year.
