  5. BBS wheels reportedly files for bankruptcy in Germany source: https://uk.motor1.com/news/434607/bbs-wheels-bankruptcy-germany/ The wheel manufacturer should stick to business-as-usual for now. 2020 has been a difficult year for most companies, and that’s putting it lightly. 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, and the financial fallout from coronavirus will most definitely take some companies down for the count. In the automotive realm, one of these companies could be BBS, which is reportedly facing bankruptcy. This would be the third time the German-based custom wheel manufacturer has been in hock. In 2007 the company went through bankruptcy and was ultimately purchased by a Belgium company. Another bankruptcy occurred a few years later, and as of 2015, a South Korean company called Nice Corp was the majority stakeholder. Autoevolution reports the current financial crisis for BBS is the result of an “unexpected disappearance of promised payments,” according to a statement allegedly from BBS. Exactly what that means is unclear. A report from Motor Illustrated offers a bit more insight. The bankruptcy filing is apparently in Germany only, with diminished demand and halted production due to COVID-19 being the reasons. The move is similar to a Chapter 11 filing in the United States, which means BBS shouldn’t simply disappear. Rather, it’s a reorganizing that, in theory, will allow the company to continue operation. As such, the report says BBS will continue normal operations for now. How this will affect BBS in the US is unclear at this point. The manufacturer has a deal with NASCAR to supply single-lug wheels for the next-generation cars in the series. Yes, that means no more twenty-lug ballets with pit crew teams during four-tyre pit stops. It also means the days of black 15-inch steelies on the cars are over, as BBS offerings are said to be 18-inch aluminium wheels. It’s doubtful that deal alone will pull BBS out of the financial fire, but having a bit more publicity with America’s premier motorsport certainly shouldn’t hurt.

    Unable to balance rims

    Went for servicing today and workshop guys told me they can't balance one of my rear wheel, probably faulty (warp). Didn't know our sg roads is so smooth till I can warp it from normal driving Can't rotate the wheel to the front since they say alignment will be off. Anyone know if theres a good and reliable place to check if the rims is really warped and probably repair it? Can't tell if theres any warping with my naked eyes. Went to a couple of shops like stamford and they can't do anything about it. If need to replace, I need to find a shop thats willing to import just 1 rim sigh. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hello all, Just to seek some opinions and advise from MCF members and experience professional. I've just committed to an AD for a new car, and here comes my dilemma... The car comes with a 18' matte/silver colored rims and I do not like the color. I've always been fan of shinny chrome rims as it is easy to clean and wash daily. Is it advisable to purchase a new set of chrome rims (same size 18') and use back the tyres, or it is better to keep the OEM rims and have them chromed so that the performance is not wrongly compromised by the newly purchased chrome rims? If the latter is true, then where in SG can get this service for chroming the rims? TIA

    Lacquer for Rims

    Where can I have a coat of lacquer applied on my rims, which has lost its shine? Contact and name of workshop (which does rims scratch removal as well) is much appreciated. * I do not wish to spray paint the entire rims. Just a coat of lacquer to bring out the shine will do.

Thinking of getting OZ HyperGT HLT to replace my current stock rims (MERC W205) https://www.ozracing.com/alloy-wheels/oz-racing/i-tech/hypergt-hlt Will like to hear your comments or thought on it ... 1) some people commented that OZ wheels (Hyper GT) may not be able to support the weight of W205 (Curb weight 1,635 kg) for discussion, 4 Adults - 85kg each, with 2 travel luggage (40KG) - total 2015kg (exclude tyres) how / where can i find the max weight that OZ GT can support? roughly how much buffer should I give? 2) also some say OZ wheels hit pot holes sure GG, is there any truth to it? or just urban legends? many thanks!

    Tyre Rotation every 10k?

    Hi Guys, got a question and need advice here. lets say car is FWD/RWD, rotate tyre at 10k. does it make sense to rotate next at 30k? since at 10k, lets say front tyre wear 20% and rear 10%, so after rotating and mileage at 20k, should be front and rear balanced, right? i know driving style play a part during the 10-20k, just saying generally.

    New rims and tyres!

    I just change my rims to 225/17/50 profile for my 17" OZ Leggera HLT 8J, is this the correct size? I wanted 215 width but Auto Kinetic says 225 is "Fuller" look. Don't quite understand. Any expert advice please? Thanks!
  19. A friend just purchased a brand new Sienta from PI. Have requested PI to upgrade the rims from original 14" to 16" and topped up $500 bucks. PI just came back saying Sienta can't go for 16" due as car will have insufficient power to move. Any bros/sis here driving a Sienta can comment? Thanks!
