    Cool, thanks! I just sent you a PM.

    I'm 99% certain that matte bronze 18" BFDs on a black Tacoma has been done. I'm going to dig through my photos and see if I can find it. This is a great color combo, because the matte bronze contrasts nicely against the black.

    Just got mine installed! I'm running 275/65/18 Hankook RF10's with no lift. I had to remove the front black spoiler (two 10mm bolts), the front mud flaps and trim about 1.5" from the back of the front fender flare. Other than that, it rides great.

    Thanks again Dustin!

    Not really Tacoma applicable, but Dustin helped me size a set for my Silverado.. First time for everything! I am stoked to see if these catch on with other Silverado/Sierrra owners!

    Personally I agree with Plik. Matte bronze on black really looks good!

    Awesome pics Edwin, thanks! Thank you for the good information on the 275/65R18s with stock ride height as well. I also love that you still have paper plates, but you couldn't wait to change out your stock wheels for a set of 18" BFDs. :woot: :thumbsup: Thanks again!!!

    Thank you Chris! I appreciate you going for it to see how the "look" would be on your Silverado. I am very pleased with how your Silverado came out! The BFD seems to flow perfectly with your Silverado's lines.

    We can get something going for the Ford F150s. We just need to get a few guys interested so that we can get a production run started in the F150 bolt pattern. :thumbsup: Have your friend call me or e-mail me if he's interested.

    Nobody has a Pyrite Mica on a set of Bronze? Pyrite's look a different color in every picture, so do the Bronze BFDs, so I's difficult to tell if they match. I think they're pretty close, but I'm not positive.

    Anybody have first hand experience with the combo?

    Thinking of putting together something lie this.

    I was skeptical about matte bronze on Pyrite Mica at first, but I think these guys really pulled it off well.

    Matte black looks good on Pyrite too:

    I'd love to see this but in a DCLB version. Is that a 6" lift?

    I'm thinking of trading in my Radiant Red PreRunner DCLB on a Speedway Blue 4x4 DCLB. But now after seeing that Pyrite Mica above, I'm debating what I like more.

    That's a 6" lift he has, yes. :)

    Both are totally different, but equally great colors. Pyrite Mica has really grown on me over the last year or so, especially when I see what a lot of guys have done with their Pyrite trucks.

    Gunmetal is almost perfect match for Polish Metal Metallic btw... had numerous people ask me if it was painted to match
