Picked up a set of BBS LM's over the weekend. Haven't put them on the car as yet, still weighing up option on new rubber !

The wheels do however look stellar!

Excellent can't wait to see it.

What rims widths and offsets did you go with?

I went for 8.5/11 et50... i believe these work well with the wide body 996 setup Wink

I believe some spacers can be used to complete the 'stanced' look - but nothing I'm considering at present...

Now i need to find some rubber;)

Morning Gents,

So having bought the wheels...im onto the question of spacers and rubber....

Given I have purchased the LM's 8.5j/11j et50 - I'm thinking about spacers at 7mm/15mm to just complete the look (for the time being)

Any views? Recommendations? other things to consider?

Finally worked out how to upload an image....thanks for your help chaps. Now I'm firmly into getting some new rubber onto the wheels. Very happy with the choice of wheels.

The issue of coilers / lowering will always linger, but for the moment, i'm sticking with the stock setup! He says....
