FS/FT: (4)BBS RC.........17 lbs PER WHEEL!..........Fits Mercedes!

(4)BBS RC Lightweight Aluminum Wheels
5x112(VW, Audi, Mercedes) AND 5x114.3(Japanese, American)
17x8 ET35
17 lbs per wheel

Comes with brand new unidirectional tires. Will post tire information later today.


-17 lbs per wheel
-Shot-peened for increased strength
-Comes with original parts
-Fits 5x112 AND 5x114.3
-Cone seat
-Straight and true
-Original paint & lacquer finish
-Brand new tires


-No BBS logo valve stems/dust covers - instead it has the black rubber ones
-Minor and not deep rash on one wheel
-Could use painting or powdercoat

What they come with:

-Wheel itself(Original, made in Germany)
-Rubber valve stem and dust cap
-White and chrome BBS logo (Original, made in Germany)
-Circular plates that go around BBS logo(Original, made in Germany)
-Screw on center-nut(Original, made in Germany)
-Original hub rings(will get size later)
-Retaining c-clips that hold the center-nut and surrounding piece together


I put these on a 5x112 Audi B6 without hub-centric rings. The holes in the wheel are wide enough to use them on 5x114x3 and were once used on this PCD. I used oil on the cone seat of the bolts and torqued them down in increments of 20 ft-lbs. I have no vibration and the difference between these and my stock 16x7 wheels is night and day. Not only are these much lighter, the turn-in response is much quicker, and there is better grip(faster acceleration, braking, and cornering). I also get a few more MPG's.

Optional Customization:

-cost of tire removal, installation, and balancing(5$ for all 4 wheels not including cost of wheel weights) IF you want these tires on the wheels when bought. If not, I can take them off for free.
-cost of media blasting(should cost me no more than 30$ to strip these all down to bare metal)
-cost of paint supplies you request. I already have an airbrush.
-cost of powdercoat gun(50$) and powder of your choice IF getting powdercoated instead of paint

The first two pictures are not my wheels. just reference pictures. The rest are mine. Note that my car has stock base model suspension.

$500 for everything
Willing to trade, show me what you have

Located in San Diego. Will ship at buyers expense + PayPal fee(3% Interstate, 4% International)
