Who makes the OEM wheels?

I know the 18s are made by BBS. Are the 19s BBS also?

Thanks.

Nope, BBS does not make the OEM style 220M forged and polished double spoke wheels...

The factory 18" wheels are in fact made by BBS, as the stamping has BBS on it.

They don't...

Their specialty is making low pressure and flow formed CAST wheels.

Ronal lost their OE suppliers contract to build wheels for BMW years ago.

They build wheels for other OE manufacturers like Audi and VW.

Ronal also builds tuner wheels for aftermarket companies like AC Schnitzer.

Tell your buddy shep to stay out of the general wheel forum please.

Nice, but not good enough.

I'm holding out for some LeMans Blue painted bumper reflector covers.

How do you know this? Looks very likely - they specialize in supplying manufacturers and tout their forged wheels: http://www.fuchsfelge.de/index.php?id=5&L=1
