FS Socal: Lorinser RSK by BBS, 5x112, 17x8 et35 square setup,

Another rare set of wheels. Bought these because I love them on Mercedes W126's and R107's, as well as early bumper W124's, but would look good on VW, Audi, etc.

Lorinser RSK by BBS, 5x112, 17x8 et35 square setup.
Wheels were refinished, but over the course of transport and an overstuffed garage have a little shelf wear. Faces are polished and barrels are painted silver.

Condition:
9.5 out of 10

The centercaps thread in perfectly, and the two piece assembly is a really clean design. Wheels and wheel hardware are all by BBS. The center cap surround reads made in W.Germany.

Note that one centercap is missing its Lorinser logo, the rubberized black plastic appears to be the same material as the other three wheels, but there is no logo. Also, one wheel lip, as a nick in it.

Price:
$1,650 obo. picked up from 90068.
Shipping available at cost.

Very cool wheels.

Do you have any side pics and maybe a measuring tape between the two tire beads?

I am always interested to see what lips and barrels are used on these various model to know what different lip and barrel sizes could make if desired. These look like they are probably made with standard BBS RS 16" 34-hole lips and barrels, and could probably be made into some widebody wheels or a lower offset if desired.

Hey Fonzi,

Sorry about the delayed response.

Indeed, these wheels have the early 34 bolt 17" wheel lips that have an inner diameter of about 12 3/8". Centers could be converted to 16" if wanted.

On these wheels, the lips are 1.5", and the barrels are 6.5". This is manufacturer sizing. From bead to bead an 8" wide wheel is about 10" wide. Sorry, do not feel like taking any pics.

Adding a 4" lip would give you an easy 5" of dish, and a 10.5" wide wheel in manufacturer sizing. Wish I had a widebody!

All that said, any takers out there feel free to come by and see them in person.

Bbs rs lip and barrels are measured from center plate/face to tire bead. It is basically impossible to get that measurement on you lip because it is a reverse lip. I can't tell if it is like a 0.5" or 1". If the barrel is really 6.5 and it is really an 8" wheel, then I guess the lip is a 1". ( The face accounts for 1/2" on all the Bbs rs I've ever seen. )

Sorry I hadn't notice the album of pics before, or that these were 17".

Cool wheels

Fonzi,
You are wrong on this one. Don't own any BBS RS, but I own more than 10 sets of 3 piece wheels at any given time, and measurents are standard. Sounds to me like you are going off physical measurements rather than manufactured. Ex. An 18" rim is in fact 19.5" inches in diameter from lip to lip, but I digress. Best.

The whole 10" thing for an 8" wheel is confusing things a little, just like the 19.5" for an 18" wheel. I understand those concepts, but I'm just confused about how you measured the lip and barrel. There also isn't any mention of what the BBS model is. This is typically printed along with the size and offset between the lug bolt holes.

You are right. It doesn't really matter for your sale (unless the buyer is looking to modify the wheels).

BBS Lips and barrels are measured from where the contact the center price, which is 1/2" thick, at least on these. Since you have a "reverse" lip, you can't see where the lip contacts the center piece, making it near impossible to get an accurate measurement. On these wheels, you should be able to easily measure:
- bead-to-bead (wheel width)
- barrel bead back of center (= barrel width)
- lip bead to back of center ( and subtract 1/2" for lip size).

It most likely doesn't matter to you, and that's totally understandable. I am just trying to understand these center pieces and how they compare dimensionally to bbs 16" faces. (I have a 1" lip and a 6.5" barrel on an 8x16 et35 bbs wheel in my garage which is made with a Bbs RS flat face rs008/rs009/rs011/rs023 etc. You can also make a 8x16 et35 BBS RS with the curved face rs077/rs098 with a 1.5" lip and a 6" barrel.)

Anyway, if you ever happen to confirm how you measured the barrel, that would be great. Thank you for helping me out.
