• CH-R with central locking is the big novelty in Essen
  • Innovative display solution for BBS dealers

Germany’s wheel manufacturer BBS sets course for the 2016 edition of “REIFEN”, the world's No 1 tyre industry trade fair that will take place in Essen from 24 to 27 May.

Here, trade visitors from around the world will witness the debut of the new centre lock BBS CH-R wheel. Other highlights on the BBS stand (Hall 2.0, Booth 2D20), are the FI-R and CH-R “Nürburgring Edition” wheels, and the new BBS aluminium wheel display stand.

Preparations for the tyre fair are in full swing. “REIFEN is an important date in the annual calendar for us,” said Erwin Eigel, Head of Aftermarket at BBS. “We are looking forward to fruitful discussions with trade visitors from around the world."

The centre lock BBS CH-R, specially designed for the Porsche 991 GT3 celebrates its debut at Essen. Offered in 20-inch size only, this wheel will be presented on a real track tool, the Porsche GT3 which RSR Nürburgring provides.

Featuring low weight and maximum strength, the BBS FI-R ultra-light forged wheel sets the bar higher in its class, while the exclusive “Nürburgring Edition” of the CH-R design bears strong design links to motorsport. This recent addition to the BBS Performance Line is available for most common applications in 18, 19 and 20-inch sizes, and offers a satin black finish with its collision bumper in contrasting BBS-red.

For dealers, the aluminium wheel stand just added to the BBS Collection will help them display wheels to best effect. Costing 199 euro, this stand is designed to hold four wheels, and features a unique space-saving mounting system.
