BBS Motorsports - As New - E88 in Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooold!

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
Sold
Location:
✓ Will Ship
Item Interest
I know I'm crazy but I bought these gorgeous wheels, had them on the car for one day and 20 miles, and now have decided that I want to let them go. They are perfect in every way; not a spec of damage. I simply don't like the combination of Gold and my Silverstone II car. See the pictures below showing the wheels on Silverstone II, Space Gray, Melbourne Red, Jet Black, and Alpine White. My loss; your gain. Enjoy!

** Please review my iTrader feedback (see link under my avatar on the left). I pride myself in honest, no-surprise sales. I ship quickly and the product will be as represented!

Model:
BBS E88 Motorsports - Forged Aluminum 3 piece

Note: BBS Motorsports wheels are the only wheels that BBS sells replacement parts allowing for easy repairs (BBS does not sell parts for their LM's, LM-R's, etc). BBS will sell you lips, barrels or even new centers. This is a huge bonus and adds a ton of practicality to these wheels.

Size:
18 x 9.5 et19
18 x 10.5 et19

Fitment Notes:
Pictures below show the wheels installed with the above listed tires, without spacers, and no rubbing. There is plenty of inner clearance between the 275mm tires and my KW clubsport coilovers.

Big Brake Clearance:
Wheels clear Stoptech 380mm (I have tested) and Brembo 380mm (I have confirmed with BBS Motorsports - They have tested and sold sets to Brembo 380 users).

Location:
Carlsbad, CA (30 miles north of San Diego)

Price - Wheels Only:

Sold

Is it for lightness? They look kind of like LM's, did you buy these to track?

I'm just trying to understand these wheels vs. say the FI's which were my next set of rims for my F80 m3....
Thanks for asking; those are great questions. Compareing LM's to these is like comparing an M3 to the M3 GT4. Both great but the performance of the GT4 destroys the M3. The FI's are a personal favorite of mine but keep in mind they cost $8000 and you are stuck with BBS's off the shelf specs (which suck in the 19" version). The E88's are special because....

Racing Pedigree:
These are from the BBS Motorsports department which is separate from their street wheel department. BBS Motorsports makes custom wheels for numerous racing teams including BMW RLL team, the new Turner Motorsports Z4, Risi Ferrari etc. The E88's are an evolution of a classic BBS design that's been around for decades. It's the same wheel that is found on the Daytona Prototype cars as well as the 911 Cup cars (the latest version of the cup cars have a slightly different wheel design with similar construction). Simply put there is not a wheel in existence with better racing pedigree than the BBS e88 (or it's many variations).

Look Familiar?




Customization:
The E88's and other multi-piece iterations sold by BBS Motorsports are custom made to the owner's specifications. BBS's street wheels are only available in off the shelf offsets and widths which frankly are often not logical. Many of BBS's street wheels are not available in specs that interest me. For example the 19" FI's have useless offsets and the 19" LM-R's are not available in anything wider than 10".

Repairable:
BBS Motorsports wheels are the only wheels that BBS sells replacement parts allowing for easy repairs (BBS does not sell parts for their LM's, LM-R's, etc). BBS will sell you lips, barrels or even new centers. This is a huge bonus and adds a ton of practicality to these wheels. Damage a BBS LM, FI or LM-R... buy a whole new wheel ($1300 to $2000). Damage a lip on an E88... buy a new lip ($220).

Quality:
Look closely at the pictures. The E88 has back milled spokes to minimize weight and the detailing on the centers is phenomenal. The centers and lips are fully forged and these are known to be a very strong wheel. Their weight is not super impressive (22 lbs) but they are again very strong and the build quality is second to none.
