Default BBS 20" LM exact wheel specs please? pic example

I've asked this question on the BBS LM thread but no one could give me a definite answer. I've done some HW and found out the Lexus IS-F center bore is EXACTLY the same as my nsx/s2000 rear!

Rear center bore is 64.1 mm so I want to get matching rims for both my white cars!

Can anyone tell me what the exact wheel specs are for the LM's below?

I know those are 20" LM's but I was thinking of ordering a set of the exact same LM's but in a 19" stagger so here's what I was thinking:

Fronts 19x8.5, +43
Rears 19x10, +40

(the rears will fit both the IS-F or my NSX so I can swap if needed)

What size tires would you guys recommend for the IS-F tires? I plan to do Falken Azenis 615 tires this time around, no more toyo's.

On my NSX I'm running a 18x8.5, 18x9.5" stagger setup right now but I really want a 19x10" rear and I found a vendor who can get them from Japan for me.

thanks
rick

Can you get them all hyper silver/aluminum? Thought about Nittos?

I'm weighing the LMs vs Wald Mahoras vs Vossen vs D2Forged...

I'm ordering from BBS Japan and my Japanese is not that fluent

Anyways I wanted to know the specs of the LM's on this white car and it seems no one knows?

If you are ordering directly from BBS, you can ask them for the proper setup for the IS-F. There's no need for you to do any guesswork. And 19x8.5 +43 for the fronts is too conservative. That's close to stock. Good luck!

I will see if I can dig ug the owners blog page and I will shoot him an e-mail if I find it. I know he had one , once upon a time.
I have spoken to BBS Japan over the phone for these wheels and they give very resserved offset's, you are better off getting info off someone you know and ordering that size.

Default Update

Sorry to say guys, this car looks like it is running similar to stock offsets. Tire size is 245/30ZR20 for the front and 255/30ZR20. Also the wheels are a limited edition wheel called "Champion Edition".

If you really want to know the offsets I will shoot him an e-mail.

I agree, all these so-called "FORGED" wheel companies use this term loosely and frankly the quality is ok at best. I know some of you who own these wheels will disagree but I've had enough experience with cheap forged wheels. I won't name names here but pretty much every forum has these wheel sponsors.....

You will never see these companies wheels on anything besides their own demo cars. True race cars will continue to use BBS, Work, Volk, Enkei, etc.

Even the all mighty HRE is no race wheel as the company makes it out to be!


Back on topic, I would really like to know these BBS LM wheel specs just for my own records. I'm pretty familiar with offsets / widths and how this all plays out to overall wheel look. I own every H/R offset spacer and have played with offsets on my s2000, nsx, m3 and a few other cars to test fitment.

I will have to double check on the Lexus IS-F center bore but I swear I saw it was 64.1 (same as nsx/s2000 rear). Once I get the wheels I'll measure the center bore with my digital caliper.

IS-F STOCK setup is:

Front: 19x8, +45 sitting on a 225/40/19 tire
Rear: 19x9, +55 sitting on a 255/35/19 tire

CENTER BORE = In question (60.1 or 64.1) Regardless NSX rear wheels will fit the IS-F so that's good news for me
