    I know that, and I very much doubt 888 will disclose.

    Rather than guessing, just thought I'd check to see if anyone did actually know.

    sure some nice person with the wheels can measure the letters for you!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    I've asked 888rich before as above, but I think he prefers to keep it secret. If he has a change of heart I would be very grateful!

    i seem to remember pming a reply to the questions you asked me

    you asked where i got the decals - i said i made them myself - no other questions were asked since regarding sizes

    i used a picture of the lettering from a rim - took the curve from the wheel measurement, curved some text in illustrator, sent to the cutting program and stuck them on - font i used was probably ariel bold extended, or a heavy swiss/helvetica font.

    the centre caps where done by printing 3 8's and altering the text shape with illustrator, sent to a digital printer on a cast vinyl and stuck over the existing team dynamics logo

    incidently im also not prepared to sell triple eight related logos/text as id be stupid to do (they were done for personal use and are indeed slightly different to the original logos - the original 888 supplied wheels have the letters printed on them. i found 888 very hard to communicate with on many occasions over the years so i chose to do it myself as opposed to paying 888 more money for the sake of buying the wheels through them.

    the paint code that team dynamics use is sparkling anthracite, but you may find that even with a paint code/number they gave me its useless info as the codes corrispond to team dynamics only and not a general paint for cars.

    i chose bmw sparkling graphite in the end,
