Thought I'd have a hunt around to see what the cheapest prices are for BBS LM's.

Venom Motorsport have them for the following price per wheel:

8.0-8.5 x 18 ?395.00

9.0-9.5 x 18 ?425.00

Is this as cheap as they get, or has someone seen them go cheaper?

Yep inc VAT.

Gonna give em a ring in a little while to see what sorta deal they can do including tyres.

About 70quid cheaper than anywhere else.

I thing i dont like about the LMs is that they only come in a 25mm offset! so they stick out on the front!

nooooooooo.... just rang Venom, and they're saying BBS have stopped making them [:O]

Then rang BBS Direct, and they're saying there's none in the country - this does not sound good [:(]

That is bad they've stopped making them, I've ALWAYS fancied a set!! Could BBS be bringing out some new wheels? I ask as i also read someone saying the CH is being discontinued?

Yup. They don't make them anymore, only what ever's left is available.

They're bringing out very similar set, I think they're called BBS GT's. They are three piece rather than the current 2 piece set up that LM's have.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

Damn, I knew this was going to happen when the GT's came out. I'm not saying they aren't nice, but they don't even come close when put next to an LM Wheel.

and Phaeton. But there is no registration of this type for Golf V.

rial daytona race wheels? identical to the LM's and a little cheaper too.

True, I believe you can get them for ?360 per wheel.

TBH I'm after the LM's as my show wheels, and want to get a set before they become too rare [:)]
