BMW Alpina // Forged
The BMW ALPINA Wheel; an all time classic.
The creator of such design, Burkard Bovensiepen, came up with the 20 spoke wheel as a simple solution to the aesthetic required for the design brief at the time. Burkard Bovensiepen was fascinated by the Fuch design, however as most cars of the time featured a 4-stud PCD, the aesthetic of a 5 spoke wheel and 4 stud design wouldn’t look quite right.
The solution was simple: 4 x 5 = 20. And this was it, a beautiful 20 spoke wheel which mathematically gave a gorgeous aesthetic which had never been seen before. Both a Porsche’s Such 5-Spoke and ALPINA’s 20-Spoke designs would optimally distribute the forces within the construction and it’s still clear to today that both have held their ground as two of the most iconic wheel designs to be produced.
At Rimscarnated, we realised certain specifications of the original ALPINA’s are simply unavailable or were never made in the first place. We have taken this as our design brief and has designed a wheel in which features all of the aesthetic of the ALPINA’s but has full customisability in the finish, size and offset. This allows the clients to choose the exact fitment they would like for their factory spec or fully modified BMW, both modern and classic.
Simply, let us know the exact specification you require and if you don’t know this yet, we can provide you a measuring sheet which is very simple to fill in and we can calculate the specs you would need based upon your measurements. Once this is done, we would only need to know the finish you require, in which the sky is the limit.
These wheels are available in the following diameters:
13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22
