BBS RA 237 16x7 ET23 5x112

I have a set of 4 BBS RA 16x7 ET23 that I want to sell. The rims are in overall good shape but could use refinishing as the white color doesn't do them any favors in the looks department. One of the rims appears to have a small flat spot, I don't know if I'd worry about it. It is pretty hard to see.

Other than a few cosmetic issues the rims seem to be in pretty good shape. I started cleaning them up a bit and think your best bet is to strip the waffle cones then paint either silver or gold. I'd then polish out the lips and these rims will look bitchin.

These fit well on my 1978 280slc and there aren't any clearance issues with the brakes or anything. I put two on my car looked good. Currently two of the rims have tires on them which I will be putting on another set of rims. These rims work well on the pre-1985 mercedes and won't require any fender rolling or "clearancing." I think they would be nice on a w123, w126, r107, w115, etc.

Also including 13 BBS lug bolts along with 3 lock bolts and the lock tool. I only have these. The lugs are stamped with BBS but I cannot get a good picture of this.

Asking 650$ for the rims plus shipping or can meet in or around the SF Bay Area. Also consider trade for a spare Rial 16x8 basketweave plus cash.

Thanks for looking, if interested either PM or contact me at: benzbaron at gmail dot com

Open to offers, don't see many BBS in 16x7 the perfect size for an easy install.

Going to start polishing out the lips, should start showing a bit better with some shine.

Thanks for looking! I periodically make trips through Sacramento towards Tahoe so if you are in the valley or adjacent area I could probably deliver these beasts.

Started polishing out the lips and with 45min one rims is looking much better. I'd almost have the waffles blasted myself and refinish them, but if I'm not going to keep them I figure I'd want to leave the color choice to the buyer.

Open to best offers.

Kind of surprised these haven't sold, maybe I'm a bit bullish with the price or everyone just got the bills from christmas.

Hell I might sell the lug bolt and centercaps and keep the rims. I'd try to ebay them but everytime I sell on ebay I end up losing time and money.

Still for sale. Don't think I need any more parts or rims, my place is currently looking like a cross between a mercedes used parts center and a junkyard.

Thanks for the interest!

If interested please send me an email to: benzbaron at gmail dot com. The benzworld PM system is a bit cumbersome.

PS: It helps if you read the advert, I've had a few inquiries and people want to to spell out the information clearly stated in the original advert. Think I scared one person away when I mentioned the rims are almost 30 years old.

Still available, would consider trade for tan leather AMG steering wheel plus cash. I might end up ebaying these suckers, I'll give it until thursday then they'll go up on ebay.

Thanks for all the interest and looking at my advert.

Have someone interested in the lug bolts so I might be selling them separately. Anyone interested in the whole mess should let me know now.

Thanks for looking and nice day!
