I've got the old style magnesium center BBS motorsport wheels exactly like those on an old BMW.
You can't use a tire machine to mount and dismount the tires on those rims because the thin gauge lightweight spun aluminum barrels will bend and be ruined.
Like most people I got real sick of unbolting, seperating, and rebuilding those rims while a big tire is on them after the third set of tires...

Nope not me... you'd have to pay me to use those things.
I'll take DOT spec street rims that can go on a tire mounting machine any day.
