Clone wheels from China in cast alloy using the same dimension as a forged BBS wheel would only be suitable for owners like EP that never drive their cars. :lol

are you sure that site is in NZ? I called them and talked to someone in the US and he said they came from salvaged/wrecked/parts cars.

Maybe they have/get used ones and new ones from China?

I thought I recently read that BBS, a German company, had gone through a bankruptcy proceeding, and was purchased by Punch International, a Belgian company in 2007. I thought they said that the Japanese company "Washibeam Co., Ltd" manufactures the BBS F1 Magnesium wheel and All racing Aluminum wheels. Since BBS is a customer of Washibeam, manufacture of the wheel will not be discontinued if BBS goes bankrupt again.

Does anyone have any option BBS front or rear wheels they want to sell,they will be used for racing so slight damage [curbed/scratched etc]should not be an issue.

You can try these guys. They don't always have them in stock but at least it's a place to try.
