    When I tested 265/65R18 on a stock Tacoma it rubbed only with the steering wheel turned in reverse. Driving straight or turning / parking going forward did not produce any rubbing.

    Your wheels look great! I was just about to contact you after tomorrow. We had a one-off set done by our powder coater as well. I believe it should be a perfect match to mag-blue, but I wanted to wait until I got them back. It looks like your wheels came out perfectly!

    I'll have a set available tomorrow that we just had powder coated magnesium blue (dark metallic blue) as well. I'll post pics too! As I mentioned above, I was keeping it quiet until we got them back, but I think our powder coater nailed the color too. :thumbsup:

    I have a set of the Konig Countersteers and I am pretty sure that this color would look badass on my 2 week old 2012 Magnectic Gray Metallic Sport!!!! :D


    How much did you guys pay to get them powdercoated??

    The wheels are available in 5x150. Or do you need 5x114.3? PM me. There are some other options I can find for you if you need 5x114.3.

    In my opinion this color was MADE to go on grey vehicles. My powder coater charges about $70 per wheel to do this color on a set of 18" wheels.

    The reason I had a set powder coated: I want to post up the wheels for feedback once they're done. If enough people like and want them, I can have this color made as a factory finish at little to no extra charge.

    Your truck is going to look bad-grass. :cool: I can't wait to see photos once you have the wheels installed.

    The 18x9" FN BFD wheels are available in 5x150 for the new Tundra, Sequoia, Landcruiser, etc.

    If you're looking for 5x114.3, I know that the new 17x9" Konig Six Shooter that I just posted above can be manufactured in 5x114.3 in either a 17x8" or 17x9" configuration, but a certain minimum ordering requirement has to be met first.

    Another new wheel that FN Wheels has coming out (I posted photos in the Wheel/Tire forum) can also be ordered in 5x114.3 if the demand is there. Shoot me a PM if you'd like, and I'll help you out.

    Ya, not the Tundra. Will be looking for something in the 17x7.5-8.5 range. Not looking to go extreme, just a little wider and a lower profile than the 215/70-15 that I've got now. Still plan to keep my brand new $155 215 as the spare so I'll likely be looking in the 235/55-17 range.
