BBS wheels on eBay?

What do you folks think of these? Looks like they're in pretty damn great shape.

Not really a chrome guy.... but these look pretty sharp...

How much of a PITA are chrome wheels to keep clean?

As far as the specs go, the fitment is reasonably good. As mentioned by the seller, at a minimum you will need to use the 5mm spacers on the rear. As far as price is concerned, assuming that the seller is looking to get somewhere near the buy it now price, I would say that 3k for a set of heavy two-piece wheels is pretty high. In my opinion there are many more better choices out there for far less money.

I haven't looked at the BBS line in a awhile, aside from the LMs, but are the RSII's that heavy? I would think they'd be reasonable light, being a two piece wheel?

The fitment looks pretty damn good.
