BBS has been flow-forming wheels since 1996. Flow forming is a procedure that uses a continuous rotational motion with 3 hydraulic rollers and tremendous pressure at high temperatures to "Form" the inner rim area of the wheel. This process changes the mechanical properties of the cast rim area to increase strength, stiffness and impact over "stiffness to weight ratio" which can deliver very high level of performance at a cost that is much lower than a forged wheel.Features:

In 2004, BBS was voted Entrepreneur of the Year in Germany by certified public accountants Ernst & Young. With 1,200 employees, environment-friendly production processes, and a dominant presence in the light wheel market, BBS is considered one of the most successful companies in Germany.
Today, BBS continues to transfer race car technology and race-bred performance to road wheels designed for the latest high-performance luxury automobiles. As always, BBS pushes itself to set new standards, aiming to radically reduce wheel weight while ensuring absolute concentricity, perfect balance, and the stability its reputation has been built upon.
