FS/FT: BBS RS 009 16x8 ET11 Mercedes w126 fitment
It was a real tough decision, but it's come time that I part with these babies...
Here are a set of BBS RS 009 wheels in 16x8 with an et11 (offset) on Kumho 225/50/16 tires with ~55% tread left. These bolt on directly to the w126 with no need for spacers/adapters/wobble bolts etc. I purchased these back in 2010 from the original owner who bought these new at the dealer for his w126! Only changes I made were polishing the lips & replacing the rusted bolts with those of the polished variant (purchased from BFI). The rear lips on these wheels are 2" while fronts carry 1.5" for that staggered look. Two front caps are full height hex caps & the rear are the smaller height... The fronts remain full height due to the w126 front hub, but I have a spare pair of smaller height caps (I'll be including 6 caps total). The smaller caps out back combined with the larger lip, give a deeper dish appearance. These are straight and true & no cracks on the original barrels or lips.
It took me quite some time to find a set specific for the 126, so it pains me to let them go. ONLY trade I'm willing to consider is for a set of CRACK FREE - OZ AMG Aero I 3 piece wheels in w126 fitment (17x8.5 et18 & 17x10 et17), or just the crack-free faces in et 18 & et 17(with no lips or barrels). NO OTHER TRADES besides cash. I'm willing to ship, but will depend on destination & cost is to be covered by the buyer. Local pickup preferred... located in Fairfield, CT.
Below, first two are some pics of when I first bought them & remaining were taken a few weeks ago with new bolts and polish.
