OK, well I've got a price for getting the wheels done. I've got a brand new set of red BBS badges and I've got a new set of stainless steel bolts.

I'm going for silver centres with polished lips. Keep it looking OEM-ish.

Here's my dilema - the bolts are not genuine BBS bolts. I like them, but am undecided if they look better than the standard ones. They're a lot lower profile with hex head. Which do I go for?

The ones I am planning on using are here: (I think they make the dishes look deeper)

not my bag. if your running proper bbs's, run proper bbs bolts.

allen bolts makes them like like fake ass calibre wheels with those bolts. sorry.
Static - Banging oil pans, scratching bumpers, dragging exhaust, static owners go through it all for the sake of Stance. I pay tribute to those that drive low day in and day out. Keep on scraping my static friends.

Justmatz have genuine BBS bolts in - I got a load more links on my home PC, talking about £140 for a fullset.

How will reverse mounting the centres give the wheels MORE poke?

Because you use the inner barrel as the wheel lip.

I don't think its realistically possible, just people dreaming.

Its on wheels like LMs where you can mount the face behind like on RCs to give a bit more poke.

Fair enough.

On the other note - justmatz = £156 delivered for an entire new set of stainless BBS bolts.

They're not getting new ones in until Friday, then I'll order some and send the others I bought back.

I'm dropping the wheels off tomorrow hopefully.

Not on 5s :)

Just a 12point 10mm socket, although some of mine were also 6 point.

They emailed me again. He'd made a mistake and actually wants £300+ for new bolts, washers and nuts!!!!

I'm guessing I can't just reuse the old bolts?

It might be worth giving the lads at Trident Racing Supplies a call, when I rebuilt my 2 piece jap wheels I brought 140 high tensile lock nuts from something silly like £15. Just give them a call and see what they say.

BBS stuff is different

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...=item2c5a06708f

They need that splined colar on them to hold the bolts to the faces as they don't have bolt heads. If that makes sense?

That was for the M7x30 bolts from justmatz. Nuts included.

Some sites say definately no to using your old bolts, some say why not.
