BBS uses die-forging. It is very expensive and not cost-effective to do load ratings specific to each application. Even in they did I'm sure it won't be too far off from other applications since you can only machine so much out of a wheel.

The FI is an incredible looking wheel
But is is not a BBS MotorSports wheel. To be within those weights for the E92 M3 application you must be at less than 600kg load rating based on that design and using 6061-T6.

BBS states this wheels are not recommend for track use and are limited for road use only.
