Gents I've found a lot of old posts but I want to ask the questions again sorry as sometimes things change.

Where is the best place to purchase in the UK?

Is the correct sizing for a NB car:

Front 8J x 18" ET 52
Rear 10J x 18" ET 65

Thanks in advance and sorry to annoy if we are going back around in circles again (no pun intended ).

Ian

I’m all ears.
You have an S or Turbo ?
I’d love some LMs

They are the same spec as Speedline RS wheels, so you shouldn't have any issues running them on a narrow body - I run the same size wheels without issues. You could push to 8.5J on the front if you wanted...

Pics in the meantime... Cool









..and this car below is just stunning...

^^^^ The Speed Yellow car is running BBS E88's not LM's. Much nicer wheel IMO. Thumb

LM for the road

E88 is a motorsport wheel, but can be used on the road

Mine are 8.5 on the fronts and are spot on with the offsets as above.

I really must sell these, insane to have them sitting about. They haven't been used since they were refurbished. None of my cars will take these and I have gone older now so no chance in the future.



Here is why I won't be needing them, different era but a good wheel is a thing of beauty. Cool

I agree - BBS LM's look perfect on a 993 . I spent a very long time sorting a set for my nb C2 . The sizes you state fit just fine without issue as I did have a set of 996 sport classics on my car previously in those sizes.
I personally am not keen on the flat look the BBS LM in this size give - together with the difficulty I had finding some that size for a reasonable price.

I bought a secondhand set 8.5x18 et56 fronts / 10x18 et 50 rear . They were fine on the front but the rears rubbed . I looked at rolling arches and altering camber angles but wasn't keen on either option . In the end I sent them to TT Tools in Chelmsford. They plugged the stud holes , machined off 10mm from the rear face of the centres and then remachined the holes . This effectively gave me an et of 60 . I run Bilsteins set at -30mm and have no issues with rubbing or clearance and and very pleased with the results .
The fronts I have since reverse mounted which makes around 14mm difference I believe so have an et of 42 on the front - again with no issues .
Hope this helps .. as it may open up some options for you
