BBS RM012 on a MK2 ?

Post by DJPremier » Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:37 pm

Evening all..

Some BBS RM012 rims are on my baydar. 15"x6.5 ET33 (4x100 natch) on 195x55x15 Dunlop Sport 2000. I'm looking for a headsup from anyone on here that has these rims fitted to their bodykitted MK11. Was it an easy fit or did you need to mod things, change the tyres etc. ?

In my case, potentially to go onto my MKII Storm with the added ingredient of lowering on Weitecs by ~40mm. Is this a recipe for disaster or joy ?!

All opining on the matter gratefully received. Any pictures of similar would be even better .. :mrgreen: Thankings in advance ..

UPDATE: Perhaps this give me a clue

though those rims look wider than 6.5..

I run rms but they are 7.5 and 8s so with body kit think you need a little wider wheel

Niiiice. 8-)

Arches rolled I assume ?
And with, or without, the front wing inner shields ?
Lastly.. How much drop ? If that's 40mm - 50mm then it looks bang on for what I'm trying to achieve.

Thanks for the response.

Hi Dave, you'll need to change those tyres 55 series way to big.

195/45-15 will allow you to go lower but look a little lost under rear arches, 195/50 - 15 your best bet.

Big plans for the car I understand?

Hey Sean, thanks loads for the tyre advice. That's much appreciated :thankyou:
I have two sets of rims to play with now. A set of Estorils on 195/50-15 and the RM012. Those need some lip polishing and then they too will go on 195/50-15 T1Rs.
It might be a case of Estorils for winter, RM's for summer. I like 'em both !

Big dreams more like. LOL. Luckily the grotto is down just the road. Gotta keep (semi)realistic though. :mrgreen:

I had a set of BBS RS033's on my GT2... They were 8x15 all round with 185/45x15 Nankangs, and the coilies wound all the way down (3/4" travel left on the front struts!! lol).
