BBS LM Forged Wheels for Lexus RC F and GS F the Legendary Japanese Made Forged 2 Piece German Wheel

There are few wheel designs in the world that have the legendary history and pedigree as the BBS LM that also crosses respectfully across all the different vehicle cultures (JDM, Euro, Domestic, Exotic).  Although BBS as a brand is German and origin, the BBS LM is manufactured in Japan so there is actually a very strong case for BBS being a great fit for the JDM market.  In fact of Lexus community most of the wheels for the F models are OEM and manufactured by BBS for Lexus.

So that’s what we wanted to talk about today is the BBS LM and providing more information about this wheel.  The BBS LM wheel is made of aluminum and is die forged for considerable weight savings and strength.  It comes as a two piece wheel with every face and barrel designed to work with each other as well as the engineering of those combinations checked against their stringent OEM standards.  Every LM is tested for the integrity of its design due to the strict requirements that they have to follow for their OEM Manufacturing.  In addition they have a significant motor sports program that operates globally and the data that comes back from those programs goes into the design of their road wheels.  So essentially the design of BBS wheels is born from racing in motor sports but redeveloped for daily use.  You gain all the benefits from the motor sports development side which is rare among all the various wheel manufacturers today.  That tends to be only the wheel Brands that I’ve been around for a long time have this level of engineering and design.
