If you have the original bbs RG776H in decent condition I would like to buy them. If you are interested email me at bill.benavitz@arthrex.com

Re: Looking for wheels

I have the original wheels. I am looking for a extra set. I would like to find some 12" wide wheels. I would like a little more tire for the back. Maybe a 305/680. I am still measuring to see what will work. I may talk to Bob about some BBS wheels.

Re: Looking for wheels

I run 11" front (305/65) and 12" rears (325/70) Michelin slicks. You will love it but you need to be FAST otherwise you wont get the heat in the tires and it will hurt performance.

Re: Looking for wheels

What brand of wheels and offset do you have? I have seen wheels break before. I want a wheel that is safe for our cars.

Re: Looking for wheels

CCW Wheels. I use the same backspace on all 4 corners which I think is 7.25" and I use a thick spacer up front and a very thin one in the rear. The front is probably 5/8 thick and the rear is probably 1/8". the reasoning was so that If I ever wanted to run the same size rim all the way around I have that option. If you call CCW in Florida and speak with John he should be able to help you. I use the 3 pc classic wheel even though they are softer/damage easier because I can replace parts rather then the entire wheel. They have never bent from use only contact. I have been using them for 10 years plus of racing.

Re: Looking for wheels

If you buy my GTS, it comes with 2 sets of CCW wheels (both have 12 inch wide rears) in addition to the original BBS. I am sure you don't want to buy a whole car for wheels, but CCW will make them for you for around $875 each. They are pricey, but very nice, light wheels.

Re: Looking for wheels

Do you have fender flares or do they fit under stock fenders?

Re: Looking for wheels

No flares. If you want to see some photos of them, have a look at the ads for my car posted on the forum. No scrubbing either.
