This wheel generation was specially designed for the more sporting BMW models embodies an apparently fundamental contradiction. A reduction in weight with the same unchanged wheel diameter and width. This trick has been pulled off by the AC Schnitzer engineers and designers in collaboration with legendary wheel manufacturer "FUCHS" which in comparison with their standard BMW counterparts (e.g. Performance Twin Spoke 269) give a weight saving of 4.2 kg per wheel.
This leads to a reduction in gyroscopic forces of 33.6 % on the axles and as a result brings a perceptible improvement in cornering handling with a simultaneous increase in driving pleasure. Because of the special material structure the design of the Type VIII forged alloy is slimmer than that of other members of the Type VIII wheel family.
The High quality lightweight forged wheels save approx 25-35% weight compared with conventional cast wheels and perceptible reduction in unsprung mass and gyroscopic forces on the car therefore with significantly improved driving dynamics and significantly improved acceleration and deceleration due to lower masses. It improved cornering handling.
