Width and offset and center covers

For some reason the seller won't respond to the width and ET requests.

Maybe he/she doesn't know, or know how to find out.

Also important to know if all 4 centers are available, the picture only shows 3.

I would have include a picture of 1 or all 4, but when posting a picture of 3 it begs the question...

PS: most wheels have the size info either stamped, or cast into the backs of the wheels, usually in this format, (but not always)

Fronts - 8J x 17H2 ET25
Rears - 9J x 17H2 ET20

The numbers above are just examples, but all three numbers per wheel are important to figure out if they are compatible on other cars.

The back of the wheels can also have part numbers that are meaningfull.

Problem is you need to pul one front, and one rear, clean the backs off, and write down all the numbers you see. Sometimes better to get pictures of the numbers, helpful to the sale.

SL's & 124's

I notice that the wheels are drilled for other PCDs. I think this and spacers are very common on Lorinser wheels. I believe Lorinser would make wheels that would it multiple cars, just by changing the "spacer", which I would rather call an "adapter" in this case, because I don't think the wheels would fit any car without the adapters. I believe that in most cases the adapter can bolt onto the back of the wheel, obviously being an integral part of the wheel.

Cool wheels. It seems that any prospective buyer should assume that there are just three wheels based on the information provided here.

I think the user ? Masparso ? sp? painted the centers on a set of these black, and they look pretty darned nice.

They have 34 bolts, just like a 16" BBS RS. I don't know f the parts interchange, but I think they do. I'm not sure how many bolts are on BBS RS 17". Nonetheless, I would think that even just the parts of the three wheels have some intrinsic market value as BBS RS have value if for nothing else the parts: lips, barrels, nuts, bolts, center caps, etc. All the parts on these wheels that interchange with BBS RS (nearly everything but the centers and bolt covers?) are probably BBS RS interchange.

So to the original poster, come back and provide some more information, or at least tell us that the wheels are no loner for sale/sold.
