With aluminum prices extremely high, it appears that world renowned wheel manufacturer BBS has gone bankrupt. BBS, who has been a staple in the wheel industry, makes wheels for WRC (World Rally Championship) and Formula 1 to name a few, but they are also responsible for the factory wheels on the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and a few others (Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT, and Ford GT if you want to drop some big names).
The big question will be whether or not this means BBS is in serious trouble. I can't imagine a company as well-known and respected as BBS could just disappear. More than likely they will survive due to the name they have created for themselves, but its up to someone with money to help them out. Subaru already deals with Enkei wheels right now, they manufacture base WRX wheels. But what will become of the STI and EVO? Or bigger than that, what about Ferrari, F1, and WRC? Time will tell, but what do you think?Article from Europe (you're going to have to translate from German if you want to read the whole story)
