Description:

BBS FI-R CL Forged Wheels 20X12" ET44

An FI-R wheel for the Porsche 991 GT3, mounted on the front axle in the dimension 9 x 20 inches, weighs in at just around 7.9 kilograms. The counterpart in 12 x 20 inches for the rear axle weighs only 9.2 kilograms with a wheel load of 620 kilograms.

The BBS FI-R: Minimum mass, maximum stability wrapped in the world famous BBS motorsports design with five distinctive Y spokes. With its multiple cut outs in the spokes as a world premiere, BBS once again sets an exclamation mark in the field of ultra-lightweight forged wheels. For instance the FI-r in 9,5 x 19” weighs only 7.5 kg.

FORGING TECHNOLOGY:

FORGING THE BLANKS

24 MIN

Forging of the wheel blank in multiple steps

An optimized car setup begins with the perfect wheel and tire fitment. Without model-specific attention to each wheels specifications, maximum performance is compromised. Each size was selected to find the right balance between a clean fit and the most grip possible. The ARC-8's wide range of widths, diameters, offsets and face profiles result in unique fitments ranging from 8" to 10.5" wide. Each wheel combines these features to meet the different brake caliper, strut, and fender clearance needs of each BMW model. Most vehicle models have options for wheels that range from direct-fit to aggressive for specialty applications. Daily drivers and professional racers don't have the same needs, so why should they be forced to buy the same exact fitment?

FLOW FORMING OF THE WHEEL BLANK

24 MIN

Pre-processing
Mechanical pre-processing to ensure that the wheel is perfectly prepared for the elongation process.

Heating
So that the blank is able to withstand the extreme loading during the Flow Forming process it is heated up to allow the microstructure to become more formable.

Elongation
Three rotating rollers elongate the wheel blank to the desired rim width with more than 10t of pressure via a custom wheel matrix. This rolling process specifically models the blank. The flow-forming technology allows a rim well thickness of just 2.25 mm on the finished wheel (inc. lacquer) to be achieved.

HEAT TREATMENT

14 HRS 840 MIN

Solution annealing
Repeated strong heating, so-called solution annealing of the blanks, dissolves sufficient alloying elements in the molecular solid solution, allowing them to adopt a closer connection.

Quenching
Rapid quenching cools the blanks to 70°C and hardens the molecular structure. This reinforces the close bonds, but makes the wheel blank brittle at the same time.

Artificial ageing
Subsequent artificial ageing allows the blank to rest at an exactly defined temperature and the solidified microstructure is able to relax once more. The high-precision interplay between temperature and time for the artificial ageing equips the wheel blank with the exact desired strength values and therefore the unique BBS material quality

MECHANICAL MACHINING

3.7 HRS 220 MIN

Machining CNC turning
Mechanical CNC machining is used to turn down the interior and exterior areas of the blank

5-axis milling of the design inc. weight optimization
The latest 5-axis CNC milling machines create the actual wheel design in this complex and elaborate manufacturing step. Over several hours the complete wheel design with all its features is milled out from the enclosed forging blank. The forged wheels also receive even more intensive processing for further weight optimization. Due to the excellent material quality, with forged wheels substantially larger milled out sections and thinner material thicknesses are possible. Using a patented process, it is even possible for BBS to mill out full-thickness penetrations in spokes, thereby drastically reducing the wheel weight. So for example with the BBS forged wheels, a weight of just 7.7 kg is achieved (FI-R 19).

Quality inspection runout & dimensional check
Every wheel must go through the runout check. Only if the runout check is passed according to the extremely stringent BBS tolerances is the wheel allowed to enter the rest of the manufacturing process.

Finishing
In Finishing the mechanically machined forged blank is deburred and blasted in an automated process. This removes sharp edges. The second step during finishing is manual fine grinding. The surface and edges are prepared perfectly for lacquering and further surface finishing.

Quality inspection sealing
All wheels are subjected to internal helium gas leak testing. The wheel is sealed with a hood and helium injected into the well. Only if the sensors in the center of the wheel do not detect any helium molecules is the wheel then permitted to enter the surface finishing area in the Herbolzheim factory.

LACQUER FINISH

4.6 HRS 275 MIN

Pre-treatment
Comprehensive cleaning in the pre-treatment area removes all contamination on the wheel surface, which could potentially affect later lacquer application on the wheel. This also includes the tiniest grease residues from human contact, which would be visible on the flawless surface later on.

Base powder application
Application of the matching base powder for the subsequent colored paint of the wheel. The base powder ensures a smooth and sealed surface, on which even the finest colored paint can be applied later in the process. A gentle drying process ensures that the base powder is cured and the wheel is ready for color painting.

Application of colored paint
Application of the colored paint onto the powder-coated wheel via electrostatic coating and compressed air spraying. This ensures even paint distribution even in difficult places, giving a perfect paint coating.

Clear lacquer application
The final clear lacquer coat seals the wheel and gives it its unique appearance. Depending on the version, a satin or gloss clear lacquer are applied. The clear lacquer also provides protection against weathering and minor stone impact.

Final manual quality control
Final check of the surface quality by a staff member to ensure compliance with the high BBS quality standards. The wheel then goes to be packed.
