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.
