You get what you pay for. BBS wheels are high quality and yes they are 2 or even 3 piece forged. There's a reason why so many wheel companies make replicas of BBS wheels. You can get replicas for pretty cheap, i.e. ESR, Varstoens, etc.The only problem I see with BBS wheels is they cost soo much money... in the price range of Volks. Correct me if I'm wrong but believe most of these wheels are forged??
