Need help! Can anyone let me know what rim this is?

Hi All,

I want to get these exact rims for my car (it's a 2001 2.7), any idea of the brand and also as a guest what size they are?

I don't want the polished rim but the matt as shown on the pics.

Thank you

Do an image search for "BBS LM wheel black"
I think you'll like what you see.

I would stay away from wheels with chrome.
I have 3 piece wheels very similar on my 04 Targa and the chrome has corroded and flaked on the inside causing bead seal leaks.

I now have to get them repaired/refinished.

In talking with a bunch of wheel guys, they all basically told me the same thing. Chrome will corrode and flake on the inside over time and cause the leaks
