BBS, a wheel manufacturing company, maintains its top position on the market this year, thus becoming the standard for other manufacturers. The company won the "Best Wheels" title in 2016, elected by the readers of the German magazines "Auto Motor und Sport", "Auto Illustrieten" and "Tuning", demonstrating the success the brand has among these readers.


BBS is in a continuous quest for top quality wheels. With high-edge production quality, an extensive motorsport experience, allied with amazing designs, BBS is able to remain on the leading edge of the alloy wheel industry.

BBS light alloy wheels reduce the weight, guaranteeing reliability. It also reduces fuel consumption, improves driving features and helps to reduce the strain on the environment. These characteristics have contributed to the fact that BBS' wheels are present in almost all the racing teams around the World.

The complete collection presents a wide range of high-performance wheels, made to guarantee maximum driving pleasure, safety, and superior comfort, in a combination of high-grade raw materials, special aluminium alloys and high-end production technology.

The flawless rough castings are made at controlled low-pressure stations and are then compressed in rotating cylinders. The desired strength of the future wheel is then adjusted at heat treatment composed of three-stages.

For surface treatment, various efficient methods are used, according to the specified requirements of each project. For the perfect finish, the wheels will receive several layers of coating, followed by ceramic polishing. Finally, a fine coat of clear lacquer is applied, that will protect the metal throughout a long and hard life.

BBS, which name results from the acronym for Baumgartner Brand Schiltach, was founded in 1970, by Heinrich Baumgartner and Klaus Brand, in Schiltach, Germany. Until 1972, produced plastic auto body parts, and in the same year, BBS designed an innovative three-piece motorsport wheel, thereafter assuming a superior position in the motorsport sector. Shortly after, the French subsidiary was opened, the company introduced its three-piece wheel in the retrofit market, and there was an explosion in the sales on the aftermarket.

As result, the company went public in 1980 under the name BBS Kraftfahrzeugtechnik AG, and three years later, three branches were established, in Japan, United States of America, and Italy.

Today BBS is considered the leader in wheel manufacturing and engineering technology. The company goal is to pursuit the highest level of technology and its appliance to the streets and circuits.
