    bbs radinox

    Has any body had any experience with radinox lips for bbs rm's?

    Are they worth the money compared to alloy lips?

    Goin buy some steelies for winter and sort me rm's out, so goin get new lips, but which to get???

    Liking the look of stainless though.

    Any thoughts?

    Radinox are awesome... but at over £200 per lip.... you have to be crazy like me to get some....

    I ended up shelling out some £££ when I has the BBS on the caddy... you will need some stainless bolts too if your doing it as it will always look cleaner than the alloy bolts but its an extra £150 for bolts

    Ive seen the radinox at £141 for a 1 an a 1/2" lip, so didnt think that was too bad against £107 for the equivilant in alloy????.

    Was thinking gold bolts as my centres are black.

    But then was thinkin, put em back to the original silver in the centre.

    grrr just dun no what do at mo lol

    the £141 will be just stainless steel.... the real radinox rims retail at £200 plus...

    the stainless ones with just be engraved on the rear with the word radinox the real ones are laser etched...

    real ones are far superior in strength but the stainless are stronger than alloy.... depends on how deep your pockets are...

    could be wrong but these look to be proper schmidt radinox.

    larger lips are clased as just stainless, but the 15-16" are stainless radinox.

    Confused now lol .
