Wheel Directory: BBS CH-R 18x8.0 +38



Finally got to install the BBS CH-R, silver, 18x8 +38 offset with Michelin Pilot Supersports. 245/35-18. We also installed our Racecomp Yellow springs and are playing with and testing some rear sway combos and hypothetical front sway sizes. At the same time we installed Whiteline Com-C front mounts which are supposed to add half a degree of caster and front camber. Will verify shortly to the actual gain on the BRZ.

This is such a HUGE improvement over the stock tires. The amount of grip is insane. Haven't had tome to really spend in car. Left work and took wife to dinner for birthday.

At 44years of age I stuck with silver. These come in Titanium color and black. Overall wheel weight is UP by 1/4 lb per wheel measured. I will def be doing a super light weight setup that is 5-6 lbs less per wheel but I really like this wheel.

Those wheels look great. For some reason though, the spoiler really put me off. But overall i think it looks so wonderful, the FRS/BRZ is very good looking to begin with.

245/35-18 will be 2-3mm taller. Practically no difference.

Nice work it looks good. Drop height / rates info on springs?

I think the front could use a further 10-15mm drop, hopefully it settles a bit.
