BBS FI Question

being that they are 'Forged Individual', does that mean they can be ordered in any size, width, offset one desires? (Within reason)

Too bad Leman's isn't here anymore. He could tell you for sure.

Nope.....they come in very peculiar sizes and are designed for the E9X M3. The wheels were designed and engineered by BBS's Motorsports division in Germany. These are one of the LIGHTEST wheels on the market without resorting to exotic materials like magnesium - which are far too delicate to the run on public roads.

BBS FI (Forged Individual)

19x8.75 (F) - 7.7 kg (17 lbs)
19x10.75 (R) - 8.7 kg (19.1 lbs)


We've sold a couple of sets to our Porsche customers and they've all praised how light they are!

They cannot be ordered in any size. Their is set sizing. The colors are pretty much open to whatever though. So far were the only one to import these for the M3 from BBS USA. the stock colors are black/titanium silver/polish. Custom colors are made to order only.

Current sizing made for the USA is:

19x9.5 +28 5x120

19x10.5 +25 5x120

These sizes are new per our and BBS USA recomendation to Germany. They will start being available this month.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

... and probably a whole lot less stressful than having to air freight them out of Germany to make it in time for Bimmerfest!
