18" Wheels finaly fitted

I finaly did it.

Had some 18 BBS RK 11 (split rims) fitted to my car today and they look the dogs.

Can anyone post some pictures on the site if I send them some pictures.

I would do it but I dont know how to. I have seen a few post on how to

do it but still cant get it to work.

Cheers in advance.

Re:18

I guess you mean BBS RKII two piece wheels. These wheels are cast and weight is 23 lbs for the 18 x 8.5 wheel.

Just found a pic of them on your car

I stand corrected, I do mean BBS RKII.

What do you mean on my car. Thats not my car. It doesnt look like an EVO 6.

The wheels look better on an EVO 6.

Skeletor,

this was supposed to be a joke, everybody knows this Audi POS is not your car. On the other hand, it tells people what your wheels look like.

When I say I guess you mean RKII, it was to check that you did not get a new model called RK11 as you wrote (I dont know BBS wheels too well, dont like stuff from Germany), that's all.

I thought for a minute maybe you were mistaking Audi's for EVO's.

Only kidding

Re:18

What size tire do you have? I wanted to install the 225-45-18 but dont know if I will have any clearance problems.

Re:18

Torque,

I have fitted 225-40-18. No clearance problems.

I think if you fit 225-45-18 the rolling radius of the wheels will be wrong.

Re:18

Moses,
Bearing in mind that the standard OE tyre for the Evo 6 is 225/45/17 which doesn't rub, I can't see how your comment is appropriate to the discussion. The guy is talking about 18 wheels and tyres.

Well said, lets back to some vintage MLR discussions! Using a little less of the mate .

Special Order?

Skeletor

Were your wheels a special order?

Have been checking into BBS alloys today and have been told from two separate dealers that the only ones which had the correct stud spacings were the CH’s, as Blade is offering via the group buy.

Best price I have been given so far is £1495.00 including fitting, balancing, Toyo tyres and VAT.
