Unlimited Fit. Unlimited Style. Unlimited Value.BBS presents the customisable CI-R wheel for Audi's compact A3 (8Y)

– “BBS Unlimited” provides new aftermarket business opportunities

– Perfect fitment for every marque and model

– BBS wheels are a better investment than ever

Reminiscent of the mathematical symbol that represents the concept of infinity, the new corporate logo of premium wheel manufacturer BBS is a promise of endless possibilities. BBS now presents a 20-inch version of its widely customisable CI-R "Unlimited" alloy wheel for the Audi A3 (8Y) Sportback and saloon models. Complete with full ABE certification across the range, this bespoke designer wheel will be available from September 2022, with prices to be announced later.

The perfect fit for every car: Part of the “BBS Unlimited” range, the flow-formed, lightweight CI-R alloy wheel features a bolt circle (PCD) of 5 x 117.5, and is fitted to individual vehicles using BBS hub adapters, vehicle-specific centering rings, and appropriate wheel bolts.

The versatile and future-proof “BBS Unlimited” modular hub adapter system allows the base wheel to be adapted to the bolt circle and offset requirements of individual vehicles. Made from high-quality aluminium alloy, and anodised for extreme corrosion-resistance, these hub adapters come in thicknesses from 14 to 50 mm and deliver the maximum number of possible applications across most brands and models on sale today.

The Audi A3 (8Y) shown here features BBS CI-R Unlimited alloy wheels in the elegant Bronze Satin Matt finish. Sized 9.0J x 20-inch ET 59 with a 14mm hub adapter in front, and 9.5J x 20-inch ET 65 with 18mm hub adapter at the rear, these precisely calculated hub dimensions help the wheels fill the arches for a purposeful stance. A personalised look is the BBS way, and there is a wide choice of colour options for the basic wheel, collision protection ring, hub caps and even the valve cap. The CI-R wheel design is available in Satin Black, Satin Bronze, Satin Racing Gold, Glossy Diamond Black, Satin White Gold, Satin Indigo Blue, Polished Ceramic and Platinum Silver. A 21-inch variant of the BBS CI-R Unlimited is in preparation.

The “BBS Unlimited” concept makes it worth investing in a new set of alloy wheels, especially as the modular PCD and wheel hub system allows you to transfer the wheels to your next vehicle.
