SOLD - BBS RM, Two piece wheels - 15 X 7 $650

Recommended Posts

Nice rims, but need re-assembly, a bit of cleanup and possibly some straightening.

These came with one of my project cars, in pieces with new hardware. I gave them to our wheel guy who assembled them with no sealant, straightened them (I think all of them, but I'm not sure) and then told me it wouldn't work without a gasket (which doesn't exist as far as I could find) and he didn't want to assemble them with silicon sealant... so he gave them back to me as they are now.... I haven't had time to take them apart and re-assemble them properly and keeping thinking I will, but I'm just too busy. Overall, these should present really well when complete. (Note, orange in the pictures is just liquid wrench that we put on to lubricate the threads as we removed the nuts, wipes off easily)

I've seen complete sets anywhere from $1,200-2,200 depending on condition.

Price is $650 + Shipping

You will need at least a 5mm spacer to clear the front struts, but these should tuck in nicely on a non-flared car.

Do these have wider lips or are they stock at 15x6-1/2? Do the bolts say "BBS" on them? A buddy from another forum is interested. I'm restoring a set now. Great wheels.

With stock lips, they should be 6.5"

Also, be carefull when you torque the bolts. It is very, very easy to overtorque them and destroy a few threaded holes

FWIW those look just like the stock reversed 1/2" lips, making these 6.5" wide (and the same specs stamped in the center of the wheel).

And they are assembled with no gasket, and then a thing bead of silicone or gasket maker is applied to the gap where the lip bolts to the face/barrel. Let it dry, then throw on another layer. Said to be leak free for years if allowed to cure correctly and applied liberally.

I like a very very thin layer of silcone where the surfaces meet as it allows to avoid any possible movement of lip vs the barrel.

I think you'd be more likely to see movement from that thin layer extruding itself or heat cycling than metal on metal, no?

Not my experience. BTW By thin layer, I really mean a thin layer. as in "smear"...
