I believe the 15" has less than 34 holes, but could the 16" and 17" perhaps be interchangeable? Yes but it is a lotz off work. you have to find a company that build spezial Barrels and lips for it.

EDIT: From the pictures, it kind of looks like the 17 and 18 might be interchangeable, but not 16-17. Correct?
Yes this are correct.

Those are all some rare ones: widebody, 17s, 18s.

Are these just your super-rare ones?
Do you have tons of run-of-the-mill 16s and 15s?

Hi Fonzi

only the RS 276 and 277 are Very Rare 17 inch Widebody wheels

other 17 inch you can find sometimes in Germany / RS 199 - RS 200 - RS 236

and in 18 inch BBS Build only a coppel RS sets off them / this are not Super RS wheels

we talk about 3 peace wheels

the Old Widebody on 15 inch are hart to find / this are König ore AMG widebody wheels

for W116 - and the first series off W107 and W126

I have been working a similar chart, but trying to determine which wheel faces are identical, and specifying the lip and barrel sizes of each model as I come across them. For example, the RS008 and RS009 are identical, but the RS009 have 2" lips and the RS008 have 1" lips. Both have 5.5" barrels. When I have a more complete list, I will post my chart.

How specific/correct are the "VA" an "HA" in this chart? I see that "VA" means "front axle" and "HA" means rear axle, but:
- I know that you could mount rs133 on the rear axle of a 107 without problems.
- I would be shocked to see the 12.5x15 RS204 on the front of any car, even a widebody.

Also, I know the rs133 were made to fit the Gen2 r107 (protruding front brake calipers), but they should be able to fit on a wide variety of cars, at least the w126, and probably the r129.

I don't mean to be critical. I just have a yearning for learning these old wheels.


As for me and my obsession, I need to draw the line somewhere, so I am sticking to 16". No 15, 17, or 18 for me. I do like the look of those 18" though. Fortunately, 18" wouldn't look right on a 107 as I understand it.

P.S. I have discovered that the BBS RS wheel charts online are not comprehensive. For example, the BBS RS011 is a 7x16 et35 wheel with 1" lips and 5.5" barrels that is not in the list. I have added it to mine with references to instances where I've found them online with those specifications. RS024 9x16 et21 seems to be another missing from the list. I wonder why the lists online don't seem to be comprehensive.
