Can anyone tell what offset these 17x8" BBS RKs are?
 
Just picked up a pair of BBS RK 17x8's. How can you tell what offset they are? Here are a few pics. 28mm???

This pic is very blurry, but inside the 2 circles are "28" & "01"

28 sounds like it could possibly be the offset, but it's a bit unclear. Are there any other markings on the wheel? Have you tried measuring the backspacing?

I'll measure the BS. Person I got them from said they were originally on a E36 M3

Measure the backspacing and report back to us. :thumbup:

Looks like a 6" backspace. So that makes em 38mm offset correct?

That looks to be correct.

I looked very closely & found they're ET40. It was very lightly stamped on the edge of the wheels.

Looks like your measurements were fairly accurate then. Within 2mm is pretty good! :)

Late to the thread, but I was just going to recommend looking on the inside lip of the rim. I bought the same wheels a few month ago and the owner didn't even know the offset. I happend to stumble upon it when cleaning them.

Great wheels and super light. You will notice a difference right away in how your car behaves.

Cheers!

From what I recall, the BBS RK that we used to sell for this size was ET40.

Street fighter, how much were you able to pick those up for?

Exactly! I was cleaning em up a bit & found the ET40 very lightly stamped on the outer edge of the inner lip. Very hard to see compared to the rest of the stampings throughout the wheel.
