    First off, I'm completely fine and all occupants in both vehicles are ok. Last Sunday my Mini and I were side swiped by a Cadillac Escalade. Her front passenger wheel mauled my rear driver wheel. And now do to her incompetence I'm asking for your help. I have a set of custom 17in BBS wheels and have no clue what model they are.
    Hope someone can help

    I don't recognize that wheel.

    Why do you call them custom?

    That or the CH-R, but there are some differences, especially the way the webs go all the way over the lip.

    Those aren't CH-Rs or RG712Hs.

    Those are BBS CVs.

    I thought they were CVs as well.

    I call them custom because I had them widened and powdercoated black chrome. The adjuster isn't going to like that lol, but that's what insurance is for...

    Widened? How exactly did you widen a one piece cast aluminum wheel?

    Cut them in half, and weld a ring in the center. Not a novice job, but I have seen it done.

    A guy here used to have a Terminator Cobra Mustang, mini tubbed with widened stock SVT wheels. Looked mostly stock minus the lowering, until you looked under the rear of the car and saw almost 15" of rubber on each rear corner.

    Yeah, I'd want a very reputable aluminum welder doing that stuff.
