    Thread: Bbs rs

    1. 05-30-2012 07:40 PM #1
      OK found a set of RS 17" for my MK6 , only one thing is holding me up ,,,, will it fit???? 50 offset on 2 of the rims other 2 are 35 , what will I need to compensate , does this mean the face of the rim is going to be closer to the rotors? Main concern is the 50 offset

      Thanks

      +50 will be fine. i think we're good up to +55.

      i think the offset on my RSs are alos +50, or +53

      are all BBS rs faces the same as in offset /thickness

      would a 50 offset have a longer barrel and smaller lip vise versus 35 offset shorter barrel and more lip

      Just trying to figure this out ,

      don't want the rim to stick out that much because I want to run a tire that balloons more / lip saver / wife's car 235 hopefully in the rear and 225 in front is what I'm shooting for

      Thanks
