Following its acquisition by KW automotive in June 2021, wheel manufacturer BBS is making a comeback with an innovation that ensures its wheels are compatible with a broad range of vehicles. Unveiling this addition to the BBS portfolio at The Tire Cologne, managing director Klaus Wohlfarth stated that BBS Unlimited represents a “very large promise.”
Mak has added a 23-inch fitment to its Speciale and Speciale-D (Deep) range. According to the company, the Special 23” is designed to satisfy the most demanding drivers of cars such as the Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne Coupé.
A world-first from the Ronal Group at the IAA motor show in Frankfurt: The alloy wheel manufacturer has presented a one-piece, 3D printed alloy wheel. Although a concept, the wheel is entirely road legal.
We first saw the Ronal R64 alloy at The Tire Cologne show in May, and Ronal reports that the light commercial vehicle rim has now arrived in the market. Designed for payloads of up to 1,400 kg, the Ronal R64 is a five-spoke design suitable for fitment on vehicles such as the VW T6, Ford Transit, Citroën Spacetourer, Peugeot Traveler, Toyota Proace and SsangYong Rexton.
A new five-spoke, one-piece cast alloy rim has joined the Dezent portfolio. Called the TY, the rim was developed to offer an optimal balance between material strength and weight, and is available in silver or dark grey – graphite matte, as Dezent calls it – finishes.
The success of the Eurosport Stuttgart has presented Wolfrace and its engineering team with an interesting dilemma – how to go about reinventing one of their most popular wheels without spoiling or otherwise unduly changing its appearance. As far as dilemmas go it’s certainly a nice one to have, though not quite as nice as the solution Wolfrace has actually come up with, the Stuttgart Ultra Concave. According to the company, it’s perfect for “VW T5 and T6 owners seeking to make an automotive statement”.
BBS is launching a Porsche-specific 20-inch, centre lock version of its CH-R design. The “Nürburgring Edition” of the CH-R wheel will be available in 18, 19 and 20-inch sizes for a wide variety of vehicles.
