BBS LM-R Wheels for Nissan GT-R – More Photos from GTR-World

July 24, 2009 Comments off


GTR-World got the scoop on some more glamorous shots of the new wheels from BBS. The LM-R in DBK color manufactured and sold in partnership with Hashimoto Corp in Japan. You can now get a feel for how they look posed properly on a GT-R. The red center caps looks great.

These classy wheels are performance oriented too, if you needed another excuse to put the credit card down they shave 0.5kg per front wheel and 1kg per rear wheel off your unsprung, rotational mass. A decent saving.

BBS LM-R Wheels for Nissan GT-R Coming Soon

July 9, 2009 Comments off


After much success with their classic LM design wheel which debuted in Japan in March 2008, we expect to see LM-R wheels become available for the Nissan GT-R in the near future.

In a partnership with Hashimoto Corporation, BBS will produce this limited edition 20″ wheel in the following sizes and offsets:

Type and Color Size Offset Price
BBS LM-R Front DBK-P 20×9.5J +40 196,350 yen
BBS LM-R Rear DBK-P 20x11J +20 205,800 yen

Each wheel set will come with red center caps with gold BBS logo and anti slip tire features. They’re also guaranteed to be compatible with the standard runflat tires and TPMS system. They’ll be available in just Diamond Black face colour with polished lip for now and they’re manufactured in forged aircraft quality (ACQ) aluminium.

No real photos of a set fitted up yet, just a bad photoshop on the press release, can’t wait to see them on as these wheels look amazing in the flesh.

BBS LM-ACQ Wheels: Silver on Black and White Photo Gallery

April 8, 2009 Comments off


Regular readers have figured out by now that I’m a pretty big fan of the BBS LM-ACQ wheel in it’s various colours. We’ve been rambling on and on about them since BBS first announced them way back in 2008, over a year ago now. Doesn’t time fly!?

Well BBS USA got in on the act recently and has worked with BBS Japan to import BBS LM-ACQ wheels in Nissan GT-R sizes for US GT-R aficionados. GT Motoring has snagged a set in DSK (Diamond Silver) and fitted them to their Challenge brand GT-R to show them off. NAGTROC user Vic55 has also picked up a set for his White Ivory Pearl 2009 GT-R with a set of red center caps to match his red Brembos. Very stylish.

These two are perhaps the first Silver sets I’ve seen fitted up since all the Japanese ones so far were DBK (Diamond Black).

These are available for US owners now in limited numbers so get in before they’re all gone. Enjoy the photos below.

January 26, 2009 Comments off

BBS’s plans to roll out two new colours for the Nissan GT-R was announced in late 2008 after the initial run of LM-DBK (Diamond Black) 20″ wheels sold out in a very short time. Only 100 sets of the Diamond Black colour BBS wheel were made.

The colours you see here are the new normal production run of BBS LM-ACQ wheels in the two new colours. Diamond Silver and Gold Face. These shown here are 20″ versions specifically for the Nissan GT-R.

These will be available in both Japan and the US this year and come in sizes 20×9.5″+40mm front and 20×10.5″+20mm rear. BBS Japan and BBS USA will have more price and availability information shortly.

BBS USA To Launch LM-ACQ Wheels for Nissan GT-R Stateside

November 26, 2008 Comments off

BBS Japan made waves in March when they announced they would produce a limited edition 20″ wheel for the Nissan GT-R exclusively for the Japanese market. The BBS LM-DBK-P (Diamond Black painted center) wheel was produced for the Japanese market in an extremely limited, and now sold out, 100 sets.

A few of those sets made it out of Japan to grace show cars at SEMA and the like and the US crowd liked what they saw.

BBS USA has reached a deal with BBS Japan recently which will see the production line fired up again to produce these wheels exclusively for the US market. That’s right, now only US owners will have access to the BBS LM-DBK-P 20″ GT-R offset/pattern wheels complete with US pricing.

BBS Japan recently announced two new colours for the Japanese market, LM-DSK-P (Diamond Silver) and GP (Gold Face) but will no longer sell the LM-DBK-P there. BBS USA will offer the LM-DSK-P wheels as well.

Expect to see these by December or January at prices yet to be determined.
