    Does anyone have these in Black on a SuperWhite? I have only been able to find Gunmetal, silver and bronze.

    I'm glad you didn't give up! :thumbsup:

    I would definitely go with matte black. Graphite gunmetal wouldn't look bad either, but I think matte black would look the best.

    I have sold a few sets to First Generation Tacoma owners, but I haven't received any pictures from them yet.

    I will look through my photos and see if I can find some for you. As common as you'd think this color combination would be, I'm actually not sure if it's been done before. Matte bronze has definitely been the most popular color for Super White. I think matte black would look great too.

    I LOVE these wheels... almost a perfect match for MGM

    And be sure to order up a 5th wheel for a spare so your fitment matches when you get a flat. Nothing like having an awkward stance or track if you have a blowout or puncture. I wish I had a set of black too so I could change the look and go back between color match and contrast whenever I want. They have just the right amount of poke too when you lift it so it feels super stable at higher speeds and cornering or with a load.

    Your truck looks great! I'm glad your happy with the color and fitment. Thank you for the photos and the kind words! Nice R8 too! ;)

    If you ever want a second set in black just let me know. I'd be happy to get one out to you. :D

    P.S. I noticed your XD sticker on the back window. I'm a big fan too. :)

    My supply is very low right now. The quantities listed are pieces (individual wheels), so I'm down to my last set in all colors right now.

    FN Wheels has more BFDs in production right now, and the inventory will be replenished in March. You got the second to the last set of matte bronze until March. :)

    Im getting there......
    Hey I love the look of these would they look good on a SWB in graphite? would you suggest these or the konig countersteers for off-road/trail use? Which will hold up better in general or should I be looking at others? I am pretty careful about my rims overall (have zero rash or pitting on my current rims).

    Good questions!

    I think dark colored wheels look really good on Speed Way Blue, so I think the dark graphite gunmetal BFDs would be a great choice for your SWB Tacoma.

    The BFD is a stronger wheel than the Konig Countersteer Offroad (different manufacturing process), but the Countersteer Offroad is still plenty capable for off-road and trail use. The main thing to consider would be whether or not you want to go with a smaller diameter (16" Countersteer offroad) or larger diameter (18" for the FN Wheels BFD).

    The BFD can take more abuse than the CSO, but the tires for 18" wheels will have less sidewall than a comparable diameter for 16" wheels. Do you need more sidewall flex for the type of trails you'll be driving?

    Personally I like the look of longer spokes with the 18" design of the BFD, and I'm OK with the amount of sidewall that I have with my 285/65R18 tires. But some guys that frequent more intense trails need more sidewall, so 285/75R16 tires give them what they need.

    I'll send you a PM, and we'll figure out what will work the best for you.

    I have been thinking about getting some of these wheels for my 2010 Land Cruiser.

    Do you have any pics of these on a late model LC?
    Why are the majority of the pics around the Web without any center caps.
    Do you have any pics of the 5 lug wheels like these with the center caps on? Maybe even on a LC, Tundra, or Sequoia?
    [​IMG]
    My LC is Supera White, I am leaning toward the Titanium or the Silver. So many of the wheels designed to fit the 5 Lug Toyota Truck hubs have huge center caps, that totaly change the looks of the wheels from the pictures.

    All PM's have been answered.

    As of today - all 6x139.7mm BFDs are sold out. The next production run is expected to arrive in approximately 2-4 weeks. I am taking pre-orders now. :)

    Thanks everyone!
