The light-alloy wheel manufacturer BBS is nominated as well and takes part with its new BBS RT Unlimited (RT-U) light-alloy wheel in 10,5 x 20 inches (offset is at 28 millimeters). The wheel will soon become a part of the Classic design line at BBS. The letters “R”, “T”, and “U” stand for “Racing”, “Track”, and “Unlimited”. Wheel sizes of 18, 19, and 20 inches and rim widths of 8 to 12 inches are planned.

For the World Wheel Award, the RT Unlimited wheel will be presented with a Glossy Black rim bed and a rim star in Satin Bronze directly at the Essen Motor Show 2022. Furthermore, the new wheel design can also be examined directly at the BBS fair stand (hall 3A, fair stand number 3A47). The color palette for individualizing the rim bed and rim star is currently in the making. In the future, BBS plans that new colors are possible at any time.
