    Anyone know the best place to buy a new set of BBS CH's with tyres?

    I'm thinking about some summer alloys and these are high up on the list of possibilities.

    I've just heard elsewhere that BBS have gone bust.

    http://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/news/wi...01854_14140.hbs

    In German I know, so rough translation:


    Shame Of all the manufacturers to go bust, you'd think BBS would be last, especially with the motorsport links they have.

    Still should be able to get hold of some.

    I shopped around to get the best quote when I got mine, If I remember right South West Tyres came out cheapest but delivery was a couple of weeks, I got them from Demon Tweeks in the end as they price matched my cheapest quote(south west tyres) and delivered them in three days.

    There is a guy who allegedly has CHs in stock in 5x100 and 5x112 in 18 8j and 8.5, in the UK!

    Not 100% convinced though, he's in the North of England. if anyone is interested pm me! Be careful though in case he's got warehouse stock that may be caught up in this!

    Don't trust it - he hasn't got them in stock, I won the auction to find he didn't have them in stock. Thought I was getting a good deal at £830 delivered. Glad no money was handed over.

    Can't say I'm surprised that BBS have gone bust with the price of their rims, although I would love a set of CH's they are a lot of money for a pair of shoes

    I dont mind saying mate, I paid £1413 delivered, fitted with Yoko Parada Spec 2's and included locking wheel nuts. This was in March last year.

    The wheels on there own were £854 plus vat.

    I told ChriS3 who to speak to at Demon Tweeks not long after so he could get his.

    Lol, yup got mine from the same place, with the same tyres (very good choice, the only tyre I'm using in the dry from now on).

    To be fair, I was thinking about them just before I saw yours, but yes, yours were the inspiration to make me commit to getting them. Should have something different on by the summer....

    not sure if that is the same guy but this fella sounded full of **** tbh! He wanted 950 for 18x8.5 wheels only.

    If your guy, said they were in stock and they aren't, AKY, I'd report him to ebay! it sould be a scam maybe he is owed some money by them for credit etc, and he wants to take some customer for cash then blame it on the insolvency.....? NOt good whatever its about!

    I told him to withdraw my bid 3 mins before the end which he kindly did, so I haven't lost out. You are right I should have reported him but couldn't be bothered.

    So did he admit he did not have them in stock....? But the ad said he did, or did his ad say they were not in stock?

    I think i may know who he is and i can say for sure that he won't have the wheels. I don't even think he is a registered BBS stockist!
