I got these from Kevin and Alan at Modbargains. They had told me they looked more like the BBS LM's than any other replica and I have to agree. They look amazing!!

Here you go, sorry for the horrible suspension set up. H&R fronts don't do these wheel justice and I'll be looking to upgrade to a better suspension setup in the future.

Thanks for posting up the pictures of the 885 Mesh wheels Stephen. The Diamond Black finish definitely looks amazing on the color of your E39 M5 and I'm glad that everything has worked out according to plan! What's next for the beast?

Looks awesome!

Alan is the man @ Modbargains!
Thanks Valli, congrats again on your new Eisenmann Race setup !

Definitely gonna get either a new suspension setup or euro headlights. Leaning more toward suspension after getting these wheels!!

I dig the wheels but not the center caps. On replicas, at least.

I'd go with the black centers...the red ones are for the wheels BBS makes in Japan or so I was told.
My point was about them not really being BBS wheels. And I should know since I rocked replicas for the better part of 2009. Unfortunately, I bent all 4 of them. They were pretty soft. They werent these wheels, though.

Oh. I could care less since it's pretty easy to tell they're reps (noone has quite gotten the lip right, nor does it have the BBS stampings, etc...). BBS LM's bend pretty easy too...most wheels will under our heavy cars, even the stockers.

My stockers have stood up to some rough terrain. Rough roads that bent the 19s don't even tickle the stockers.

What brand were they, out of curiosity. Also what suspension/tire were you running. When I switched to starspec z1's, I started bending rims with my JIC/Cross coilovers.
Linea Corse LeMans on stock suspension.
