BBS has been engineering true high performance wheels for more than 40 years. Over those years, BBS wheels have won over 250 series Championships, ranging from F1, Touring Cars, Prototypes, Silhouette, Open-wheel, World Rally Championships, Hillclimb and Motorcycles. We understand what it takes to engineer wheels and technologies that can not only compete, but can win Championships. Since BBS produces OE wheels for many manufacturers including companies like BMW, Ferrari and Porsche, we understand the true performance requirements along with the proper load rating, tolerances and durability specifications.
BBS RF wheels come from the BBS Die-Forged Series lineup. The RF 517 DBK is a split five spoke design. The wheel is finished in diamond black. Starting from a billet of 6000 series or even a special 7000 series Dura aluminum, these aircraft quality alloys are forged with up to 18 million pounds of pressure. Every stage of production is optimized and controlled in-house to help create the best forged wheels in the industry. BBS forged wheels are not only light, they have been designed to optimize the stiffness to weight ratio while providing the safety and long term durability expected from BBS.
Under normal & reasonable use, BBS wheels are warranted against structural manufacturing defects for 10 years. This warranty is void if wheel shows signs of impact damage or if application is not approved by BBS of America as outlined in the published BBS Application Guide. Also void if wheel is altered in any way including, but not limited to: disassembly of multi-piece wheels by anyone other than BBS, powder coating, chroming, polishing, machining, or drilling. Warranty is also void if a PFS (centering ring system) wheel is used without correct PFS hardware.
BBS wheels are warrantied against manufacturing finish defects for 2 years from date of purchase. This warranty is void if finish deterioration is caused by outside influence including wheel cleaners & chemicals, impact damage including stone or road debris, neglect, improper balance weights, improper mounting, repairs or any other influence at the sole discretion of BBS of America. BBS only recommends the use of mild soap and water on a cool wheel.
