Default Factory M Wheels BBS Mesh 15"

I guess these were teh factory wheels on 95 M Miatas. Did a quick clean up job on them, but its too hot here in FL to get detailed. When I take them off I'll do a bit better job. Shipping will be available and I'll get them weighed to figure out a quote. Center caps but no BBS emblem. Specs 15x7 et 35 4x100 no tires.

Looking for $400.

Wow...I really miss my 14" BBS wheels.

These are a great deal, GLWS.

If they're still around when I have money next month I'll hit you up.

Put them up locally a week ago and surprisingly, no bites. So I figured it won't be hard to ship such a small light weight wheel.

Looks like 15lbs on my bathroom scale which usually reads a little higher than the scale at UPS.

I was told that the 95 M wheels were actually 15x6". These have 15x7" et 35 stamped right on them as well Germany BBS.

If they're 15x7 et35, they could be BBS RG-F(?)...then they should weight ~10lbs.

sounds like aftermarket that somebody just happened to put on an M edition.

Either way I want.

Okay, just used proxy during lunch to get around firewall and looks at pics.


Those are definitely not M edition wheels. They aren't RG-Fs either.

Looks like an OEM BMW application, but may still be aftermarket.

Judging by the center caps they're not so much missing the "BBS" emblems as they are the "BMW" emblem.

This link suggests they are from an E36 or E39:

BMW OEM BBS Wheel Center Hub Cap E36 E39 325i 528i New:eBay Motors (item 350235728523 end time Aug-10-09 20:24:28 PDT)

Not trying to rain on you're parade, just helping to find wheel weights etc.

EDIT: I've yet to confirm this though, and am pretty sure those were both 5-lug cars.

I'll take a picture without the center cap on if that helps, but like I said they weigh in at 15lbs on my scale which is usually a couple pounds high.

Definitely agree with you on the cleaning part Urban, I think I'm going to put them in the parts washer today, if they'll fit to get them a little cleaner.

Now that I can see the pictures, these are not e36 wheels (5 lugs) nor GTI wheels. GTIs are 2 piece wheels with allen screws at the outer ring.

Was thinking of these, but I could be wrong about being 2 piece.
