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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
