when i was growing up my father had a 1987 911 Turbo Slantnose. it was BEAUTIFUL! was an original factory slantnose, Guards Red with black leather sport seats. my pops added a 1.0 bar boost spring in the wastegate and a custom Borla exhaust, which to this day is the nicest exhaust sound to me ever! anyway, he had a set of 16" BBS RS's on it in gold with the polished lip. i have some pics of it somewhere, but alas, i don't have a scanner to upload them. a shame too because you guys/girls on this site would love the way that car looked! for what it's worth he replaced those BBS eventually in 1992/93 or so with 17" ( ) original Racing Dynamics 5 spokes. in the early 90's those were some of the first 17's out there and were considered outrageous, and we rubbed everywhere we went with that setup.

RS's can come in 15,16,17 & 18" (not all 4x100, different bolt patterns)

Rm's are in 15 only

RS's only came in 4x100 with two designs.....the RS001 which is 15 and the rs003 in 16. The RS003 are uber rare and very hard to find. The stock lips that came with the 003's leaves them at 16x7 et25 which is a little too much poke for our cars with only a 7 inch wheel.

The RM's are easier to find in 4x100 and like konky said....15s only. They have a much better barrel size for our car, and the centers are much thinner allowing for more dish than the RS's even with the same offset.
