Quality - With FEM analysis, done according to the “finite element method”, the structural behavior characteristics of a new wheel model – for example in regard to strength or dynamics – are determined via computer and optimized during the construction phase. Using FEM analysis, the behavior of a wheel model under real operating conditions and stress can be simulated.
X-ray Inspection - Leave nothing to chance: after low pressure casting all rim blanks are examined by x-ray so as to be sure to detect any potential air pockets or surface defects. No mistakes are tolerated. Not a single wheel leaves our premises without being x-rayed!
Heat Treatment - Unlike many Asian or other European producers, our light alloy wheels are heat treated. This is crucial for the stability of the aluminium and hence guarantees the first-rate quality of our products.
Die Casting - To produce a really perfect and long-lasting wheel, you need to start with a top-quality casting blank. BBS uses low pressure casting to produce them. This involves pressing the aluminum alloy in a multi-part mold with up to 2 bars of pressure. After cooling it down to about 400 degrees Centigrade, the mold is opened and the casting blank is ready for further processing.
Paint Quality - In addition our environmentally-friendly paints, our paintwork processes also comply with 100% of the original equipment quality standards of the leading premium vehicle manufacturers. Furthermore, meticulous quality inspections ensure that our wheels always present an absolutely immaculate surface finish.
With the SX design, the company once again makes good on its claim to be represented on the market year-round with innovative products and services, and is offering another winter wheel for the changeover season in autumn in addition to the highly successful BBS wheel SR. The one-piece newcomer in the fresh doublespoke design with BBS design elements is produced exclusively in Germany. Compatibility with standard tire pressure monitoring systems, a special coating and the unrestricted suitability for snow chains ensure enjoyment of the product.
