BBS RS008, RS009, RS011, RS017 centers, and a variety of lips and barrels to work with, making
- offsets anywhere from 62 to 11 for 8x16
- Widths from 6.5" to 9.5"
Sorry for the bad night time cell pics, but I disassembled these wheels last night, and put them in their correct original barrel+lip configurations (and started stripping two 0.5" lips and one 1" lip that really need stripping+polishing). The wheels are now boxed in my garage awaiting news on the configurations that are desired.
Since I have five dis-assembled wheels plus two more assembled wheels, I have lots of flexibility in the set that I create for the next buyer. Shipping in the lower 48 should be around $25 per wheel before getting into insurance or express shipping.
The price may vary depending on what is desired. However, since I prefer not to sell bent or damaged wheels
, assume that I will be spending about $120 per wheel just for professional wheel assembly and to have my wheel shop assure that your wheels are straight, round, true, and have no curbing. I can take a video of your wheels spinning at the wheel shop before they are shipped. Just to not waste people's time... Don't plan on getting a set ready-to-mount on your car with no curbing or lip damage for less than $1200.
However, I think I am getting pretty good prices at my wheel shop for the amount of business I am sending them, and it would probably be a wise decision to have me make your wheels perfect for you before they go in the box. My wheel shop can do powder coating or paint, and can also polish lips to a mirror finish if you'd like. Or you can buy new lips, barrels, centers, bolts, etc and have them sent to my wheel shop for assembly before everything is delivered to you.
If you are searching for 16" MB BBS RS, chances are I can make the set you'd like for you.
I'm doing this as a hobby, and simply trying to make sure I don't loose money while doing it. I might end up making $100-$400 at most making a set of wheels, but I have already spent well more than 12-hours on this set of wheels plus the purchase price. So those will be hard-earned dollars if I make any money at all.
If I had to assemble the wheels at my lowest cost I would have:
- Two 8.5x16 et17-18
wheels from the RS009s
with 2" lips and 6" barrels
- Two 7x16 et24 RS008s
(in stock configuration)
- One 6.5x16 et30
wheel made from the RS011
a 0.5" lip, and a 5.5" barrel for an ideal spare.
- Two 8x16 et62 5x130 wheels with 1/4 height nuts (as shown) ready for adapter spacers of the size someone might want, or simply sold to non-MB owners. With adapters, we can make these fit over those big 560sl/Gen2 r107 front brakes. Those are gone.
- Four extra full height nuts
If you are comfortable spending $1200-$1800 (or more) on your BBS RS, then PM/Email me with your car model
, and I can let you know what I can make for you with the above materials. If I don't have the materials to make what you want, with a deposit, I can purchase the parts needed, or simply have you purchase them and send them to my wheel shop. My wheel shop can also take care of shipping if you'd like.
P.S. I prefer not to sell you a set of wheels until we determine we have the right fit for your car.
