Does anyone currently know whether the GOODYEAR letters are available on a group buy again?

I’d like five sets if anyone knows how to obtain them. 

Thanks

Well I got the letters and fitted them to my wheels about a month ago, so I thought I would share with you my experience and thoughts. The first thing I picked up on was the supplier stressed the

Goodyear letter painting time again.

Now then, where were we? It definitely looks that little bit better on NCTs. Took this today.

The gold on those was done prior to my ownership so no idea.  I too have a set of original BBS with gold center but no idea of the colour match.  Sorry.

Subaru or clio williams gold, yes, but it is quite different from the classic gold bbs. Gold bbs is more white cream and shiny.
 
BBS give me this answer :
"Sorry, BBS Gold colour is no RAL-coded colour as it is a special effect colour using special pigments.
BBS never published a code for it. It is not available as single product.
BBS Gold colour only is used in the factory wth newly built and revised used racing wheel centres."
 
Then, they don't want to communicate a RAL-like bbs gold.
 
 
Do you have the real original color three-parts wheel bbs ? Can you try to match it with a color chart ?

business tip for BBS, start selling the paint in (at least) spray can's  bet they will sell a lot of them

Quite impossible to spray homogeneously inside the center wheel holes and sticks...

 

I gave the wheels to a specialised compagny for wheel restoration (acid, sandblasting, unveiling,  epoxy powder electrostatic paint, oven hardening...)

Finaly they said BBS gave them the color (they said bbs doesn't give the color to individual person, but they give it to compagnies)

 

So let see saturday...

A friend of mine has some split rim compomotives that he says were off an Essex car and has asked where he can obtain centres for them. 

Ive compared them to mine and the centres seem far bigger than on my own Conpomotives. Can bigger centres be obtained from anywhere to restore these wheels?

My own type of centre next to his ‘Essex’ one
