    Hey everyone,



    We just finished up installing a set of BBS FI-R wheels on our customer's car, weight savings of 14kg in total, which as we all know makes a hell of a difference as it's all unsprung weight.

    We also lowered the car, per customer's request, and refreshed all the carbon fibre on the car - he says it drives like a brand new car.
    We'd love to hear your thoughts :)

    Just when I thought 101’s were the go to rim.

    BBS ‘s —Looks fantastic and being able to feel a handling difference is the payoff.

    Those are not BBS FI-R's ......just BBS FI. The "R's" have cutouts in the spokes.

    The car is nice. But I wouldn't use aftermarket wheels. No matter of their design. Just doesn't feel right.

    HREs are still the go-to, unless BBS has updated the offsets on these so that they don’t rub or rip out your fenders. The problem in the past was minimized by going w more rounded and shorter sidewall tires ie stretchy look.

    Looks very nice !
    I'm a BBS fanboi and those look awesome.
    Many HREs actually weigh more than stock. BBSs typically are lighter.

    highly misinformed and highly subjective. but all things being equal (diameter and width) HREs will always be lighter than stock.

    Car looks great. Congrats to the owner. Seems a little low though, must be challenging to drive without a lift kit.
