Yes that was an RKP spec 18" FI. It was likely Diamond Silver.

BBS is no longer producing the FI unless it's special ordered. The closest thing in 18" is the RIA which is available in more widths and offsets (8.5 to 11") plus Diamond Silver, Diamond Black, Gold and Matte Gray.

IND has it on their site for 8k. 9k for custom finish. I'm not sure I could put a 10k set of wheels and tires on my M3 but I've wanted the 18" FI for years.....

I hear you. The BBS RIA is 95% of the wheel for less than 1/2 the price. Plus it's available in more desirable specs.

18x9.5 et23
18x10 et25
18x10.5 et22
18x10.5 et25
18x10.5 et37
18x11 et37

Diamond Silver (same as the silver in pic above)
Diamond Black
Gold
Matte Gray

About 1 to 1.5 lbs heavier

Yep, I tried that last week and the order didn't go through, I think they've updated the website to show "sold out".
I'm so mad I sold mine last year....

I've been looking for a set of 18" FI's the last few months. Need to get some for the spring!

Yeah, for a 265/285 setup, it is THE best spec... I don't like to do spacers.



Problem with the RIA's is that you either lose 5mm on the outside w their 9.5 or you gain weight and still lose a mm on the outside w/ their 10" AND lose inside clearance.

Welp. All hopes and dreams now crushed. I guess there's always a nice set of LM's to be had. Slicer I'll be hitting you up when I am ready to take the BBS plunge!

Thank you - I appreciate that! I'll look forward to that call

The FI was no doubt a bad a$$ wheel and the weight was incredible. However, things have changed since that wheel spec was released. I sell very few 9.5/10.5 wheels. You leave a lot on the table with wheels that narrow. 265/285 is great for the street because it's the best size option in the Michelin 4S (best street tire IMO). However, if you want any tire with more grip for track or canyon use then that size frankly has next to zero options. The spec I have been doing these days is 265/35/18 front paired with a 295/30/18 rear. Or even 295/30/18 square for crazy people like myself who want maximum tire. There are tons of tires available in those sizes. That being said, 9.5 and 10.5 is simply not as wide as you want to go for these wider tire sizes. I typically run 10" or 10.5" front and 11" rear (if running staggered) or 10.5" square. I wouldn't have any interest in the old FI specs unless I were running 10.5 square.

Wider wheels provide more sidewall support, increase tread width, and squeeze more out of the tires. Light weight wheels are important but I would also prioritize proper widths, offsets, strength, etc. If you are worried about inner clearance there are solutions for that.

PS - I miss seeing your incredible moonstone e92. Damn that thing is insane.

Since we are all so nostalgic for the RKP. I waited for so long and found a set from a member here. I run the 265/285 combo and it is more than enough for my street use. Fitment is great with no spacers which I appreciate. I prefer the 18" size over 19" or bigger. I feel it suits the car better. I looked at the RIA and found the spoke profile to be similar but different enough for me to prefer the FI more. At any rate, BBS makes incredible wheels

Looks fantastic- I love those wheels and the specs are solid if you are running 265/385 tires.

Thanks slicer

Compliment appreciated

I will have to say though that MikeM5 pulled it off quite elegantly and therefore I found myself in the midst of appreciation of his MR E90.

Definitely a great looking setup for this platform.

Looks great FMLYSDN!!

I agree Mikes M3 is just perfection. It convinced me to want the 18" FI. But the more I see the RIA the more I think it could work. This is j.a.bonilla on IG with RIA

I would probably stick with diamond silver on my Silverstone E90, red caps of course.
