Plus Sizing BBS Wheels Buyers' Guide
Plus-sizing your rig with BBS wheels requires some planning. While seeking a new "look" you need to stay within industry guidelines, in particular the 3% rule which simply states that your replacement plus-size rim and tires must not exceed 3% of the original equipment diameter or you may pose risks to your transmission and braking systems.
Let's explain the concept. As you increase rims and tires your transmission "reads" rotation differently and will potentially create different shift points, which could disrupt transmission functioning plus cause a drop in fuel economy. More serious is the risk posed by plus-sizing your rims to your braking system computers and sensors, which potentially could result in braking failure. You definitely do not want to be in an accident and then find yourself "holding the bag" with full financial responsibility because you've broken the manufacturer's warranty as well as the insurer's obligations.
Key here when upgrading with BBS wheels is to buy 4 identically sized rims, and then make sure that your wheel technician uses a high quality hub ring to true the fit between your wheel and hub. Also, getting your wheel balanced and then making sure that the three suspension components of caster, camber and toe and carefully integrated in order that you get "true" alignment and maximum wheel and tire performance.
