Forging Technology - Forging is a non-cutting forming process for material in a heated, solid condition. In order to generate the highest degree of material density and weight reduction at top performance from our high-strength and durable aluminum or magnesium alloys, they are further enhanced in a complex forging process. This entails placing the heated star hub or the entire wheel blank in a press and compressing it in several work steps at 5000 to 8000 tons of closing pressure to further densify the material in a special form known as a matrix. In between the individual work steps, the blank is repeatedly heated to approx. 400 degrees centigrade. As a result an optimal material structure is achieved particularly at the areas of high strain, the wheel can be dimensioned smaller, and is thereby lighter in weight.
Weight Optimized - Because the spokes are back-milled, the optimal ratio between weight and stability is achieved for a light alloy wheel. This is achieved using a special CNC milling process, where the lateral parts that hold the wheel spokes, and are not relevant for stability, are removed to reduce the weight of the wheel‘s rotating mass.
For many car-lovers, the BBS RS is the perfect example of a classic, when it comes to selec - ting high-quality wheels. The timeless design with the elegant cross-spokes has made the hearts of countless fans beat faster since the 1980s. Now BBS responds to the consistently high demand for the legendary design with a spectacular new edition: the BBS Super RS is the new successor, which will carry forth the legacy of its predecessor with style and digni - ty. The two-piece forged wheel combines the classical RS multi-spoke look with technical fi - nesse and typical BBS premium quality.
