Epsilon 16x8/7 Staggered 3-piece alloys

This is a refurbished set of wheels that is second to none  These are the older versions with the massive lips.  The newer versions have larger centers and smaller, but steeper lips.   Here are the details:

  • Classic 3-piece wheels in exceptional show condition.
  • New cost = ??.  Its been so long and these are so rare, I can't find a cost.
  • Size = 16x8, offset = 8mm.  Backspace = 4.75"  -----   REAR
  • Size = 16x7, offset = 10mm.  Backspace = 4.25" ----- FRONT
  • Lug spacing is 5 on 120 mm.
  • Center bore = 72.56
  • Weight = 15-16 lbs.  As light as a BBS RS.
  • Made in Japan back in the late '70s or early '80s.
  • Fully Restored. 
    1. This included a chemical dip to remove all paint, followed verifying the wheels were true, and repairing some minor curb rash on a couple wheels. 
    2. The outer lips and aluminum center nuts were then polished to an amazing mirror finish.  The lips came out very nice with a full polish.  The only issues are a many pin head-sized oxidized spots on three of the four lips as shown in several of the photos.  These are seen from 3-4 feet way, but not really any further.  The lips were not coated or painted or plated.  The polished finish of these wheels is as good as it will get without compromising the integrity of the alloy.
    3. The inner barrels were polished as well.  Check the photos!
    4. The center sections were then primered, and painted with automotive grade urethane black gloss paint that has a very deep and rich finish that looks much like a powdercoat finish.  
    5. The original assembly bolts and washers were chrome plated and polished to provide a solid nice looking and long lasting finish.  Rear hardware was cleaned and re-used.
    6. The wheels were then reassembled and sealed with silicone around the circumference. 
    7. I have spun each wheel on a balancer and verified that it is 100% trued and straight. 
  • Includes new BMW Roundel emblems on the black plastic center caps. 
  • Includes new chrome plated valve stems.

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer set of these wheels! At least one photo of each wheel is shown in this listing.  Supersize to see the details or send me your email address, and I'll send you high res photos.

These wheels are designed E23, E24, E31, E9, and other older BMW with 5 lugs.  They will fit an E30 M3 and should fit an E9 Coupe as well, because the front wheels are 7" and not 8".   I have provided the specifications for these wheels.  Please study them and understand how they relate to what will fit your car.  Please ask questions if you do not understand.

These are the real deal!  Get these, good as new, fully restored wheels so your car will stand out among all the other cars with their RS wheels!

Packaging.  I ship wheels in pairs so this set will go out in 2 boxes.  Each pair is double-boxed, with rigid foam material between each box.   This adds some cost, but my wheels never get damaged in transit.


Domestic Shipping: FREE in the lower 48 states by Fedex Ground.


International Shipping:  Flat $425 to most European Countries, New Zealand, and Australia.  Canada is $175.  For other countries, figure on somewhere in the $300-500 range.
