TAS09: BBS LM-ACQ New GT-R Colours

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.

The wheels are a limited run of 100 sets only and are only for the Japanese market. They look good but I might need a few more angles before I’m sold.
