Those are BBS E28.

Similar ones are BBS E88 & BBS E28 GT2s.

I agree I think they are nicer looking also. My dream wheel is the BBS E28 GT2

There the ones I like but I bet there the ones that are even more expensive than the ones that are expensive to start with

Those ones have Rotifiorm barrels, lips (hence no BBS markings on the lips). The centres are BBS E28. You'll note that the centres are smaller and have been mounted to bigger lips in order to be 18".

IMO, I prefer the standard 18" BBS wheels.

Here is a side by side comparison illustrating the aforementioned. Standard 18" BBS E28 on the right.

These centers of the E88 are made from forged aluminium. For weight reasons they are shaped like you can see it on the pictures.
The E28 have a magnesium center (even if they are heavier) and a "straight" geometry of the spokes.

Also there's the BBS Sport Classic for Porsche - which were an option when ordering a 964.

IIRC BBS have stopped manufacturing E28s with Magnesium centres and are now only available in Aluminium. Lighter, stronger, more durable.

I am sure as everyone wants BBS E28s there's little point in posting this but... If anyone has a set of 18's fro sale in the UK to suit a stock body C2 I'd like to hear from you.
