Looks like it could use a spacer in the rear, possibly? And... where'd your screw go?!

Looks sharp though. I especially like the silver on the centre cap. Makes it look like the actual screw-type hex nuts on the RS.

if i put a spacer in the rear it might rub the fenders plus im still looking for the 9" rears

right now its just 17x8 all round

dont worry the screw i have but i dont have the nut

thanks man, im still contemplating on a color change though and i still gotta take all the bolts off again and paint them

those wheels look amazing on your car.
if you ever paint them again, make it something really vibrant that contrasts with your car.
like orange to match your sidemarkers or red to match your tails.

i dunno, nice rim colour, but doesn't really suite the z.

You are also missing a bolt. =P

amazing!!! I love BBS RS on anything... you can put them on anything from a e92 to e60 and I will love them way more than any HRE or Volk wheels every guy has across the street

thanks guys, im prolly gonna go with a really bright green for the centers just to make things interesting

Wow, those look really cool. I like them.

Would like to see something similar on some other body styles.... usually people go for a pure white rim, these ones almost look a touch creamier....

I can't stop you from going bright green... but damn. From class to clash, unless you pull off some miracle (maybe do your mirrors green to match?... lol, oh wait nevermind, that doesn't work)

If you go lime green, they better be like this; I know they're style 5's but you get the idea:

^From following some of the posts on BFC, I think that they guy who owns that car is part of a crew of guys that do really tasteless shit to their cars just to provoke and piss off some of the 'purists' on that site. Hence the, "I lover Haters" shirt in the last pic. I'm not sure how anyone could think that actually looks good, but maybe I'm just boring.

And, retro's wheels are style 5s too, he just put the BBS center caps in them.

How is that tasteless?
I think that's completely original and looks amazing!

And by the way, I know they're BBS's.

^green wheels, brown interior.... I can't be the only one who thinks it looks ridiculous. I tend to favour more low-key styling personally, and to me that looks tacky. I just don't get it, I guess.

How about a highlighter colour.
Like yellow, pink, or green.

Can't do pink my girls ride has that already
But the other colors I did have in mind
Maybe flourescent red?

i think red would look the best, because they'd go with your tails perfectly.

My gf likes the yellow. I, on the other hand, am totally against it and think the way you have it now is better than any of the fruity colours you're considering*no-no*. Someone has to be the voice of reason here.
