Cheap Korean wheels that pay BBS for some of their patents.

I think BBS's comment on the matter shows how they are not similar wheels:

BBS wheels will ALWAYS have “BBS” somewhere on the wheel. There are many “Replica” or copies of BBS style wheels in the market and they are NOT BBS wheels. Also, if a wheel is branded as “ASA” it is NOT a wheel that was made by BBS and we DO NOT have any parts for ASA wheels.

Those are nice looking wheels, but just get some Arc8s.

Let me I help you choose some wheels.

So, are you still rev matching your steptronic?

Transmission or an engine sensor at this point.
