Default BBS RS Build

I've been wanting to do a BBS RS build for a while so I finally pulled the trigger on a set. Don't see too many RSs on here.

Wheels were purchased from Jack at VRWheels.com. Great guy and great company!

17x8 +35







I found cooking them for a few minutes is the best way to get them apart

Not a big fan of meshes, but they look awsome. Look brand new again.
