New Wheels – 19″ BBS CH Black Edition

I loved my last set of BBS CH wheels so much I got another set – this time in black. I couldn’t be happier with the result – the same classic & timeless style of the BBS CH, but the black finish makes the car look much more aggressive. While I really enjoyed my silver wheels, the black ones are here to stay for a while!

The wheels are the same spec as the last set – 19×8.5, ET35 wrapped in 235-35-19 Michelin Pilot Sport Tires. The fronts are actually wrapped in Michelin Sport Cups, which are super aggressive – I really like them. You can buy them at for a great deal:

BBS CH Black w/Polished Stainless Lip Wheels priced from $540.

Here is my best attempt at a “Before and After” shot, showing how much different the black finish makes against a light silver car in what is otherwise an identical setup:

Before – Silver BBS CH Wheels
After – Black BBS CH Wheels
Before – Silver
After – Black

And for good measure, here are a few more shots of my car with the new wheels. Let me know what you think!

  1. Very nice looking wheels. Now you need a big brake setup with some red or yellow calipers for some contrast.

  2. Just found this thread…I have the 08 a4 in red, bought last year. I swore I wasn’t gonna change anything from stock (powder coated oem wheels) but after looking at this I am seriously reconsidering, the reviews and links are very helpful and informative, thanks!
