BBS Wheels??? He states on the ad that they are 19" BBS genuine wheels, made on the 22.06.04 but me and Miketdi aint sure they are BBS wheels. The reason am asking is he only wants ?300 for them!

I smell a rat... but yeah, they are nice

Shouldn't they be stamped somewhere if they're BBS? My OZs, all over the shop

im 90% certain these are NOT BBS wheels. Ive searched high and low on the net and nothing has come up. If they were proper 19" BBS rims you would be asking WELL more than ?300 for them.

they are probably fake car parts! I saw a TV program and they put a fake alloy wheel in a press and it just shattered!! Steer clear imo!

I thought Scoobys were 5x112 like an Audi A4, not 5x100 like a MK4

His story sounds dodgy as hell, doesn't even make sense

They don't look like BBS's and they don't look like any OEM Mk5 wheel I've seen.

Nice looking, but I'd be very dubious; ?300?!

Nope. 5X112 or 5X120 I think. MKIVs are 5x100.

I think it must be Mitsubishi Evos that are the same as A4s then rather than Scoobies?...I lost out on a batch of mega cheap BBS CHs with hub adaptors because one of those cars could use them and the dealer bought the lot [:(]

They look like a bigger version of the Octavia VRs alloy?

I've never seem 'em before. If they're of dubious origin i'd steer well clear. Replicas can be very poor quality wheels.
