BBS on used dealer GTO

So there is an "exotic" used car dealer down the street from me. They always have a few vettes, a viper or two, and the typical luxury vehicles. However, they currently have a very nice 06 GTO with absolutely beautiful 19" BBS wheels. The tires look a little small for them, but I could deal with that for a while.

Last week I stopped in with my GTO and asked if they would possibly sell just the wheel set, and in place take my stockers which have decent tread front and rear with Nitto DR on the rear. They simply replied they weren't in the wheel business and I should check flea-bay.....

Here are the what they look like.



I really want to stop by again and make them a more firm offer. The last GTO they sold had bald ass tires on them and they sold it as is. I feel like I just need to throw them an offer. Any suggestions?

19" bbs lm's go from $2400-3000 USED.
your stockers are worth a couple hundred bucks. id offer your wheels plus 2k if they are legit bbs.

Well every time I've spoken to these guys they know jack about any car I ask them about. Very typical used car salesman, so I am hoping they don't know what they actually have.

Here are some pictures of the actual car. Sorry the pictures are enormous;hopefully your computers/phones re-size them for you. Tires are Achilles ATR sports, 265/30's on the back, 235/30's on the front.

They're knock-offs.

Real ones have BBS stamped into the face.

im inclined to agree.

made of metal? CHECK
bolted to car? CHECK
wrapped in a tire? CHECK
able to support the weight of a vehicle? CHECK

those have definitely passed the real rim checklist.

Real BBS wheels have the name stamped into the wheel around the center cap. Just like in the first pic.

I have the Miro LM reps 19/8.5(35) 19/9.5(40). I had them custom painted as I could not find any in gold. If you want more agreeable offsets modbargains carries them with a +45 if you want to run bigger rubber out back.
