    Nice looking wheel. As cool as the holes in the spokes look not sure I want to clean them.

    It’s definitely their most complicated machining I’ve seen so far. Probably a little overkill for a daily driver, but I’ll just buy a wheel brush. Clear coat finishes will be easy to clean.

    At my track day on Friday I saw a Porsche with the BBS F1 wheels. They look cool and are very light.

    If you can have Forgelines, When they get dirty, you just give them away to charity

    I think it’s hilarious that a bunch of people who destroy $40,000 numbered cars on a racetrack cringe at a $4k set of wheels hahaha!

    Its not that... its just from a track point of view, you should have two sets of wheels or more, they sometimes get busted up, and on top of that all the rest of the costs of racing.... sets of tires, etc etc..... Every little bit counts... If I had extra cash, would spend it on shocks, SLA, cambered axle and all the other goodies.. Well that’s because most of us are a little nuts....


    For a street car those wheels look nice. Not meaning to rain on them, but this is TMO....

    Buy my math $1750 each = $7000 for 4 . I do not have that kind of disposable income to buy bling...

    Well said, Hatter. Mine is a streetcar, with a small toe in track days or auto X, so I don’t really have the expense of a dedicated race setup. I guess it does come down to priorities and use.

    The shop I work at is a dealer, so we get 40% off whatever retail is. That’s where I got my figures.

    Admittedly, if I had to pay retail, they would be out of reach.
