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?

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

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.
