BBS RGR in a nice fitment

I was playing around on the TireRack site and noted this fitment for an e60 550.

BBS RGR in Diamond Black
09.0 x 19 et20 20.8 lbs
10.0 x 19 et25 22.0 lbs

These are forged lightweight wheels. Note that the price is $4500. The centerbore is the same size as the M3, also.

These are my favorite BBS wheels, but I think the RAC group buy is a superior purchase.

RGRs are hot.
I remember the 19s would not clear a BBK though on the e46 M3 though. I had the RS-GTs personally.

Correct.

The really weird thing was...the smaller 18" RGR's did clear a 355mm BBK without spacers.

Ya, I remember looking at a set of used 18s for track use before I got my RAC RS110s.

BBK clearance should be a non issue on the E92 since the caliper is mounted further back in reference to the hub mounting point, compared to the E46, and even more so on the E36 and E30. It's funny how each generation progressively pushed in the caliper more. I guess they wanted you to be able to run a deep dish rim more and more..

I had them on my 130i and they were great wheels. Mine were 18" wheels and they were very light compared to the stock wheels.
