Those are BBS RS wheels. Can't see the size and that will affect price. They are forged, which is good but not exactly on the light side - I have some 17 x 9.5 that weigh 23 lbs. Also they have the gold center which not everyone likes.

New would cost about $580 a piece 10 years ago so depending on condition maybe $1000 +/- for the set. I have seen sets sold for $1200.

Whoa, Shark - are you sure those are RS's you have? I've NEVER seen them in 17" (they stopped with that line a while ago) and my 16x9.5 weighs ~18lbs...

The 3pc. RS's (which is what I've run) are slightly lighter than phone dials (which are light, but soft).

Yup, they are RS #258; 17 x 9.5; 52.0mm offset, silver center. BBS America told me they weighed 23 lbs, but 5 lbs for that extra 1" seems like an awful lot over your 16"s, doesn't it? I have never had the tires off and remembered to weigh them to make sure. Guess I could call Bridgestone and get tire weight and weigh the complete tire and back into it.

Bought them back in '91 and as you note they have long since been discontinued although they still have the individual parts if you bend a rim half too bad.

As far as price, I haven't really looked long and hard but saw several 17" trading around 1000 to 1200 within the last few years. Condition would certainly make a difference because cleaning the spokes is a PITA which could lead to a lot of brake dust damage if not kept up. Plus normal road damage from careless or unlucky drivers.

I saw those on ebay once, and the guy could hardly give them away. I know a guy here in Kansas City that has a set for sale. I was going to buy them for $300 for the set, but got something else. Look up directory assistance and ask for:
JP Werks in Merriam Kansas
Just tell that guy there you heard he had a set around and you were interested. He probably has them still. They are just sitting with all of the other spare stuff he has.

hey i got the exact same set on my car. and i always get comments on how cool they look on a 944. I bought the car used with them on and i always wondered how much they were new.. and what they might go for nowadays. And yeah they are a ***** to clean.. some of those individual bolts around the rim on mine are starting to corrode and i'm not sure how to clean .. replace? anyway.. if anyone knows a cheap way to clean/ refinish ? these let me know....

oh my first post btw. i LOVE this forum wish i'd found it earlier
