BBS was founded in 1970 by Heinrich Baumgartner and Klaus Brand in Black Forest, Germany with performance gains on the race track in mind. With a new focus on reducing unsprung weight, the development of an innovative new three-piece racing wheel emerged.
This positioned the new company at the pinnacle of the motorsports sector, gaining the attention from huge racing teams like BMW. In 1983, the original 3 piece "RS" design wheel was launched, introducing one of the most iconic wheel designs in motorsport history. Performance and technology remain the top priorities in all BBS wheel designs.
