Thanks again to Jeff (Captruff) for the great deal on the BBS RSII's back in January. This is the second set of BBS wheels I've purchased from him. They were completely chromed when I purchased them. I had them stripped and the centers painted and cleared. The refinisher mistakenly chromed the outside lip instead of polishing and clear coating as I requested. Instead of waiting another 4 weeks, he came off the price, and gave me a lifetime warranty if the chrome should have an issue. I think they are going to look good once mounted. I'm going to have some paint work done on the car, and then I'll mount the new wheels. They are the perfect (albeit aggressive) fitment in my opinion for the E500E. Fronts are 18x8.5 ET22, Rears are 18x10 ET20.

Those look awesome, and I agree they are a perfect width/offset for the 500E.

Very nice! +2 They look great on E500Es. Chrome lip looks every bit as nice as polished.

I personally think the chrome lip really adds more depth and is quite nice.

RSII, models RS704 and RS705 (rear only, 10") were the original BBS upgrade offered when the 036 was still on the market, along with OZ's 17" Futuras. Very nice to have, kudos for the fine restoration :-)

Got the wheels mounted today. New wheels are like a warm, fuzzy blanket on a cold day!
