Can someone enlighten me on the appeal of these?
Build quality for one, extensive Motorsports history, etc. I'd recommend you check out the BBS website if you want to learn more.

I used to own a set of BBS RS-GT wheels... definitely one of the best quality forged wheels out there.

Are you basing your dislike of BBS wheels strictly on looks alone? I'm just trying to understand your point of view, that's all. Honestly speaking, all the wheel designs out there look very similar from manufacturer to manufacturer... that's why in the end I chose to go by other factors besides looks (quality/durability of the wheel... i.e. forged vs cast, etc.)

Andrew - Congrats on your wheel purchase and enjoy them in the best of health!

Very well said.

Thanks guys for the comments..

It's such a good feeling looking at people's facial reactions when I drive past them . I have had so many people stop and take pictures of my car and tell me how nice it looks!
