Stunning pictures! I wonder if you lowered the car with the JRZs? If so, by how much?

Thx!

Such a difficult decision, many sizing factors that need to be taken into account. Do you want the lightest wheels, or is concavity more important.

We have different clients for each wheel option too, we call them custom wheels for a reason. Feel free to shoot an inquiry for a wheel set with your own specifics. We carry many sets in stock or can order them exactly how you want it, shipped directly to your door, or picked-up at the store!

BBS Motorsport is Magnesium.

BTW, here is the Wheel Emblem pricing list from BBS 2018 catalog, which in a way reflect BBS hierarchy:
Magnesium (Mag) and Duralumin (Dura) for 6k Yen each, a clear sign of their superiority.
Normal aluminum for 4k Yen each. Blue for JDM, Black for NA and Red for Europe. Generally speaking.
I just purchased a set of 19" BBS FI-Rs. Does anyone know where I can order a set of Blue Center Caps for the FI'Rs? The back of the Black ones shows part number 09.24.467. Your help is appreciated. Thanks, Jeff

Enjoying my 20" FI-Rs running 265/295 PS4S. Perfect fitment. Doesn't rub ever. Rear sidewalls look square and flush due to 10.5" rim width. The visual diff between 10" 285s and 10.5" 295s is DRAMATIC when seen from behind stationary and in motion.

BBS nailed the specs.



Latest Bugatti Chiron OEMs FI-Rs with slightly more elaborate spoke flourishes. BBS also offers FI-Rs for the Ford GT as an alternative to its OEM CF wheels (marginal weight diff).

I'm guessing the economics don't work out to produce a bespoke to F8X magnesium wheel like they did with the FI-R. The 991.X GT3/RS BBS mags cost something like $4-5K per wheel iirc.

RI Ds in my opinion look better as someone mentioned previously that without the holes its able to curve more into the centre unlike the FI Rs spokes that are abit too straight for my liking.

the RI Ds are nicer in my opinion and more muscular as a rim.
