The wheels look really good, however many cars would need a lot of modification to fit the minimum sizes which are 19" and 20" respectively.

The average sports car sizes are 16" to 19". Is there a reason why the new styles are not available to encompass smaller size wheels?

That's a great question.... Thanks for asking. We have always developed sizes and styles that best fit our market WITH customization in mind. The smaller size wheels are not necessarily "customization" friendly and in cast alloy material (like these BM-series wheels), they are not the most performance oriented.

Our forged Monoblock wheels ,on the other hand, are made as small as 18" all the way up to 22". This would be the line to look into if you were concerned with performance, strength, and weight.

Also, on the smaller body cars (W203), 19" is the largest you can run where on the newer C-Class 20" would be the recommended upgrade. These fit right into our target market and cover a wider range of cars with no rubbing and no vehicle modification required. Also, not to mention 20" and 22" upgrades are standard on the larger body cars and also cover a wide range of vehicles.

The average sports car sizes are 16" to 19". Is there a reason why the new styles are not available to encompass smaller size wheels?
