      BBS RZ




      At first, I thought these were the ones I have as winter wheels... but then I noticed how flat these are.
      Or is it just due to a different ET?

      Can anyone clear this up for me? Always wondered what these were called.

      See how mine have quite some curve to them?

      Are these the same ones, just with a different ET?

      as you know, this is a Kinesis wheel. there are also a few other companies that have very similar designs, tramont, speedline, ect. not sure about a multipeice BBS design though.


      here's one to add to the list, BBS RG. i have a set in 17 x 8/9" 5x114.3 (et45 iirc). they have metal center cap/lug cover, and the hex nut, while bigger, is pretty much the same as 17" RS hexnuts and both are interchangeable without any modification.


      and i also have a few links you can add to the list of places to source lips, bolts, caps, ect. and while most of these places are in europe, most have international shipping on lock.
      racing team hoffman
      felgen man
      another german place
      titanium touch

      and, i cold swear that rkimports is not in business any longer. not 100% sure though.

      BBS wheel bolt torque is 144in/lbs. That goes for the RS, the RM, LM, race wheels, etc. I don't know where the 40+ft/lb torque spec came from but it's a dirty rumor that spread way too far.

      144in/lbs is 12ft/lbs. Stop there. It's an M7x1 bolt, you're distorting it.

      ... to triple confirm, the wheel in question above with the Kinesis cap is a Kinesis Supercup.

      This Bugatti wheel is mine.

      It is 15x7, 5x100 and et 35. EB 515 is the wheel #stamped on the face. They are hubcentric, they clear 11.3 vr6 brakes and the lug holes are for factory ball seat lugs.

      Think on only saw RC's for a GLI
      How about Regular BBS RC's with the concave face..
      or the 337 ed. RCs with the shot-peened finish..
      Naturally i must whore a picture..

      let me know if i missed these and this is a repost amongst all these wheels..
