4 x 100, so worth as much as most peoples 4 pots? They'd look nice on your MK2 Keyo?

 

Nice but I'd be too scared to use them

Yeah there nice chap but I aint spending that sort of money on alloys and also not polishing them wheels every week would rather drive the car in my spare time 😉 

To be honest the stock BBS RA are just right for a Mk2 and hard to beat and cheap ! What I would like is a set of Sebrings so I can interchange the alloys and take the other set to tyre fitters so they dont cause damage sills jacking- they are sods round here for doing that even if you tell where to jack will be ignored. 

I had these real special BBS in 7 j can be identified by the small holes and deep dish- sold them on for £850 to raise funds and the Mk2 crowed were fighting over them - the perfect OE plus alloy and were an E30 upgrade to - much rarer then RS and the older lads long term owners craze for them  as remember them from the 80s show days. 

I do have a beautiful set of refurbished BBS RA with caps if anyone wants to swap an unmolested set of sebrings.

RAs are great looking wheels, a shame they're not available in 5x100 - certainly I've never seen any

Ive never seen a set of BBS RA 5 stud unfortunately the closest you will get to RA is some BBS Mahle 5 studs but these come in mostly Porsche and Merc fitment- and 7j  astonishingly handsome alloy  and have thick lips =  look drop dead on Lorinser kit. 

A very rare alloy that

very smart. 

The nice think about the RAs is the protruding nature of the pattern combined with a nice lip.  The Mahles above are flat, but still a handsome wheel no doubt.

TBF, I think if I could actually bring myself to spend that much on wheels (which I most definitely couldn't!) I'd almost certainly get bored of cleaning them very quickly! 

I think at this point, the only wheel I would buy is a replica 16" speedline, would absolutely love a set to keep the standard... Ish look.

Ben MJA purchased a nice set recently, money was very reasonable and new from Speedline direct - was about £650 I think

Now these are proper BBS racing alloys- these are so rare at 3k they are a bargain compared to normal RS (not saying they are cheap just compared to RS. 

Centre lock magnesium racing bbs alloys. These are a different league then RS.
