Bought another set of rare BBS'.

Yes, someone needs to stop me.

They're BBS RZ's (the same wheel design as on my car), but in the very rare VW Corrado fitment which BBS only made for Volkswagen, and for just one model year. The centercaps are different than standard basketweaves (much smaller, and the pattern is more like RM's). Size is 15x6.5 ET33, they fit our cars without spacers or hub rings (correct offset and centerbore).

They're wrapped in 205/50/15 tires, super sticky Falken RT-615's up front and some crap in the rear. Let me tell you, this makes for some interesting drifting when you push it hard, I love it. Braking it still excellent though thanks to the almost R-compounds up front, so I'd actually run it like this with confidence on the street.

I have come to the realization that I have too many wheels for this car. 4 sets in total at the moment, and 3 of the sets are technically the same wheel. If anyone here is interested I may sell them if the price is right, so shoot me a PM.

Quick shot on the street:

Your other rims were missing a cap.

Guess thats a good enough reason to buy a new set.

Nah guys, I'm keeping the 15x7 ones. I wasn't lying all this time, I'm not getting rid of the RZ's! Just buying more wheels in addition to them.

But seriously, RT-615's are incredible tires. And Hercules performance all-seasons are frightening. It's scary to know people are running around on cheap tires everyday, because I can keep this thing sideways for entire on-ramps, haha.
