BBS LM reverse face mounting

I want to reverse the face of my BBS LMs. Can someone tell me how much they actually change the offest by? Iread its around 6mm, but just by looking at my rims, it more like 12mm. Also the face of the lips, the holes of the lips are recessed, has anyone discoved recessed holes on the actual lip? Im just worried that the face wont mount onto the barrel and be 100% 'true'

looking for anyone who has actually done this and can help

thanks!

forgive my ignorance, but why would you ever want to reverse the face on the wheel!? It being a mesh wheel, the only difference would be that the inner face has a flat face on the mesh, where as the current setup of the wheel has a slightly curve on the mesh finish!? I had LM's before on my previous car, just not sure why you would wanna reverse the face!?

no its actually mounting the face 'sandwich' style as opposed to swapping the face 10 degrees.
anyways a pic speaks a thousand words.. the lip is more pronounced on the 2nd pic

Bump. I'm also interested in doing this with a set of LM's and was hoping to find out how much it would effectively lower the offset.
