These wheels are to be released in 2010, meaning soon. we should have details on pricing and availability shortly. These wheels will be made per order only im told, so im sure some wait time will apply as the factory will produce them as orders are placed.

Unfortunately not...

Fixed +22 offset front and rear for the E9x M3 application.

By the way...these lightweight forged wheels will be made by the BBS Motorsport race wheel division in Germany, and not the forged street wheel division in Japan.

First of all, wellcome back. I like to read your articles, you are one of best writer in this forum.
What are the differences between the 2 divisions?
All I want to replace OEM wheel to have a new appearance with OEM setting.
I just heard to many opinions which make me
Such as difference offset may cause inner tire wear out, incorrect offset cause rubbing, longer lugbolt may have wheel bearing permature wear out, too wide front tire may cause power steering pump problem...
Once of the worst one is "Don't worry, we will help you change it. If you don't have money, don't play!"

Does that mean a "race wheel" price? Like five figures?

BBS Motorsport division is focused on building lightweight forged Aluminum (and Magnesium) wheels for racing applications in nearly every form of Motorsports. (F1, Indycar, ALMS, World Rally Car, and many other racing series)

The unique design elements of the Forged Individual program, are the direct result of the engineering & manufacturing technology breakthroughs that were first pioneered by the BBS Motorsport division more than 20 years ago.

So when it came time to start building these forged Individual wheels, the natural choice was to let the BBS Motorsport division take the reigns. These low-production niche wheels are built in-house at the BBS factory in Schiltach, Germany. (instead of the BBS factory in Takaoka City, Japan)

As for your fear of buying the wrong aftermarket wheel...

It's a tough situation when most consumers don't know how distinguish the quality of one brand from another.

You have to do your homework. It's important to educate yourself on what to look for, and which questions to ask before you buy anything.

That will give you more confidence in the decision making process, and you can exclude the products that don't meet your individual requirements.

I know first hand how hard it is to find unbiased opinions on the products we buy on the open market.

The worst thing that you can do...is to rush the decision making process.

That doesn't usually turn out very well, and it will likely cost you dearly. ($$$$)

My advice: Take your time, look at all your options, gather all the credible information you can find, and buy exactly what you want the first time around.

the theory is, wheel whores need not apply?

I, also wonder how tires fit on x8.75 wheels... not that it's going to be stretched alot more than 8.5, but what difference is the .25 going to make now?

It will probably be pretty close considering th EURO-to-US Dollar currency conversion rate right now.

Best case scenario: 7-8k

Worst case scenario: 10k+

Not much in regards to tire sizing...

245/35/19 will still fit reasonably well, but a 255/35/19 will fit even better.
