These are available from Tire Rack (BBS Japan, forged 1-piece) with an offset of ET42 and a weight of 10.2 lbs.........and a cost of $308 each.

More expensive than SSR competitions and around 1 lb per wheel heavier (for 15x7").

I really like the BBS mesh style, but I'm not sure whether 15" rims would look "odd". Alex recommended running 205/55/15 for street use. Anybody running this set-up, or similar ? If so, can you post some piccies (or direct me to them).

Any advice ? Would a 42 mm offset be OK on a rim of this size. What would the handling be like with a 55 series tyre; OK for everyday street use ?

Thanks,
Bill.
