    Waiting for BBS wheels to be forced onto all cars like the Michelin tyre stickers in FIA.

    Very interesting to hear what’s been going on with BBS itself, and how it relates to this new partnership.

    Great choice. Really wanted that colour combo option on the rims as well. Especially with an oak green Golf GTI Mk2 to put them on.

    I personally would love to see these included for an option on race cars. Especially for the group C racers:

    I know they are on the Porsche 962C, but would like them and the other variations on it to be selectable for other cars.

    BBS Japan is run organisationally separately from BBS AG Germany. So even with the latter's recent bankruptcy (it's third filing in14 years), the production of their F1 and forged wheels (which are made by BBS Japan exclusively) will continue. Though the timing of this announcement is odd with what is happening with the founding German company.

    Let's all hope this partnership is more than just BBS branding on the menus and ad boards on the race tracks. Hope we get a more range of BBS wheels from it's historic and legendary catalogue, and hopefully it doesn't stop PD from including rims from other manufacturers.

    And my thoughts goto which BBs wheels? Would we see different kinda at each race , depending on the car? Like we see a field of Gr.1 cars on on a BBS mesh wheel?

    IIRC Michelin was listed as a "supplier" while BBS Japan one doesn't mention any of that.

    I was actually thinking the same thing when I read the article I linked in my last post about them buying BBS.

    Here's that article. Very ambitious.
    https://www.gtplanet.net/kw-7-post-rig-gt6/

    The tuning community and myself included, would have gone nuts if this was available.

    Edit: What's really messed up, is PD don't add the acceleration testing and that suspension rig in the very game that is ripe to fine tune vehicles for racing.

    Or the ability to paint the hearts, and not just on the RS, but also the LM.
