Renowned for its lightweight efficiency and stability, the BBS FI-R wheel is a testament to the company’s motorsport heritage. This wheel is easily recognizable by its five Y-shaped spokes. It also incorporates several innovative cut-outs in the spokes, a pioneering concept in the wheel industry, which cements BBS’s leadership in the ultra-lightweight forged wheel category.
In the early 1970s, two German racers from Schiltach in the Black Forest region – Heinrich Baumgartner and Klaus Brand – founded BBS. In order to give themselves a performance advantage on the track, they began creating lightweight fiberglass body panels. To help further lower unsprung weight, they also developed an innovative three-part racing wheel which quickly gained attention from professional teams such as BMW Motorsports; this spurred growth for their company. 1983 saw them launch their signature 3 piece ‘RS’ design: it is still one of leading wheels within its industry today . Keeping up with technology learnt through motor sports has been essential to meeting BBS’s mission statement “Technology through Motorsport”.
BBS provides an extensive selection of technologically advanced rims for cars, trucks and SUVs. Their choice of road wheels is composed by the BBS Forged Line with single-piece and double-piece forged models; also included in their Performance Line are one piece as well as dual structure Flow Forming varieties; plus Design Lines low pressure casting disks.
