Finding a unique wheel option is getting more and more difficult these days and while we weren’t the first to the custom wheel game, we have been doing it for a very long time. Black Forest Industries is well known for supplying quality BBS wheel parts and accessories, including wheel lips and barrels used to widen and improve those dusty and tired old sets in your garage. We have now decided to expand our catalog to include custom parts offerings. Unfortunately since we cannot list everything available currently, we do strongly encourage you to contact us with your requests so that we can discuss how we can best help to build the wheel set of your dreams.
Our current set in question are the AMG Aero II, an 18″ two piece wheel that started life on the modest side- we’ve now expanded in all directions to wind up as 19 x 10.5″, and 19 x 11″ respectively. These utilize the former 2 piece AMG wheel face and are then converted to a true 3 piece wheel. Since this wheel is being upsized, and since the wheel was originally a 2 piece wheel- designed with fewer bolts- we highly recommend using ultra high-strength ARP hardware as we have done. We plan to be releasing our own line of ultra high strength hardware designed specifically for these applications and other upconverted or extremely wide applications.
Our current line of bolts that we offer, are still very well suited for less aggressive, and non upconverted applications without issue.
These wheel centers have been refinished and powercoated in a custom one-off pearl effect gray. We do plan to begin offering wheel restoration services in the near future.
A look at the ARP wheel hardware which is necessary for upconverted and aggressively widened wheels. Again – to reiterate, our standard hardware is still more than suitable for standard wheel builds.
