I'm bummed that I have the only 16" wheel that won't fit any BIRAs, as per
the web page:  BBS RF 16x8.  I like my wheels so much and drive my car so
little (100 miles a month) that I can stand the G60s in the interim.
Maybe I'll go with Wilwoods since I barely ever drive the car so rebuilds
won't be that bad.
