Hi guys.
I'm a bit new round here, I'm from Sydney, Aus
I own a HR31 GTS 4door hardtop also sold as a passage.
It's got some 16' BBS RS wheels on it and I'm looking at getting some new outer rims/hoops to give it more width and negative offsett.
Any idea of where i could source said parts.
they are currently 16x7+26 (or there abouts) im hoping to make them around the x8 and x9 or x9 and x10 area
Any info would be great
ive seen a couple shops on ebay germany selling parts.

cheers
elliot

Well I would suggest rbwheels.com. They have a good selection of RS wheels and im sure they have some hoops, you could even probably get a lower offset and get them flush. But seeing as your in Australia you'd pay out the ass for shipping.

You can get them from several other places, but Black Forest is actually cheaper than all of those guys... :P

does any one know if BBS set their offsets so the lips would be in inch or 1/2 inch increments
as the after market lips come in any where from 1/2 inch through to 3.5 inches ide assume if i just went and chucked a generic 2 inch lip on my BBS i would end up with a weird size width. would that be correct?
