      Shouldnt matter to much, ive been updating most of the new wheels people have posted as well as links to sites.

      Upgrade the torque spec in the original posts.

      found this searching for something else. no info though. it's like an RS without the bolts. i dig em.

      could be bbs RZ from E30 bmw's but it looks like it's 15x8 not 15x7

      They are actually BBS Rg's. I used to have a set. They are forged, one piece 15x7. Pretty rare as well!!!

      The following pertains to RM012s only. When widening:

      6.5" = ET 33
      7" = ET 26.7
      7.5" = ET 20.3
      8" = ET 14
      8.5"= ET 7.6
      9" = ET 1.3
      9.5" = ET -5.1
      10" = ET -11.5

      a lil hexnut info. the RS's nuts come in a few different flavors, both OE and aftermarket.

      full-height

      half height

      quarter height

      conical/flat


      a set of 1/2's i polished, i had to take a pic before i sent them to the new owner ...

      and this pic shows the difference between a hexnut from a 17" JDM set of RG's (left), compared to a 17" JDM set of RS's. (right) both are 1/2 height.


      Conform or be cast out.

      Anyone have exact dimensions on RS bolts?
      I'm talking:
      Full length
      Length of non-threaded section
      Length of threaded section
      diameter of shaft (or thread pitch #)

      If anyone has any off of a wheel right now and can measure them for me I'd appreciate it. I am trying to see if they are the same as the bolts from my Compomotives.
      I am pretty sure they are, but want to know for sure.

      I do know for a fact that both BBS RS bolts and the bolts from my Compos have the same 8mm triple square head and 10mm rear nut.
      And that there are 30 of them per wheel for 16" and under.

      Thanks,
      -Dave
