    Falcon T8's 17x9 -38 electric teal as far as I can tell there's only 25 sets that were made. Like I said I went "wild" on the new colour after 2 sets of bronze.

    Lol... I've seen you and another member posting these in the MGM thread...

    You're right, you're going to get a lot of hate.

    I have equal desire to put obnoxious wheels on my truck. I wanted either SCS Blaze10's in stealth indigo, or 16" TE37's (not XT or M-spec) in hyper blue. I can almost guarantee the TE's will never be found... and SCS doesn't seem to want to indigo the Blaze10's...

    I don’t know what an F5 is. My 40th anniversary 4 runner came with matte bronze wheels. Getting the last 10% of brake dust out of the matte finish can require stronger cleaners than I like to use. I also had some matte black Black Rhino wheels on another truck that required a little extra effort to get clean. Being black, it wasn’t as noticeable.

    Not at all different for the purpose of my reply. The finish and ease of cleaning will be the same. I’m also not convinced gen5’s and F5’s aren’t the same exact wheel. Has anyone seen them in the same room together? :rofl:

    Enough emails will eventually get a round of the indigo blaze 10's made.
    I'm a fan of obnoxious wheels. I used to have grey spoked red lipped G7's on my GTR back in the day.

    Didn’t Vin say they didn’t sell enough last time to produce again or am I getting that confused with another color/model?

    That I can't comment on I keep hearing limited runs are wierd there will be 0 interest for ever shops will blow them out then immediately after there's interest and demand for them. The shop here had indigo BR6's forever but had to drop the cost drastically to move them.
    I personally think it's as they sell in groups of 5 rather than 4 and all the ones I have seen are high negetive offset which shrinks your potential buyers a bit.
    I watched those T8's sit on the wall for a year waiting for the price drop before I jumped on them as it's a group of 5 and I wasn't buying a fifth wheel at full price to rot under the truck or sit on my wall.

    I’ve been begging for a 17” F5 with a 0mm offset for awhile now and keep getting told that the “customers” want a wider offset. I’m glad it seems at least one other person agrees with me. I get most buyers are working with a 33” wheel and larger, but I find it hard to believe a wheel with 0mm offset wouldn’t move, but I am also not in the market research field so what do I know lol

    For the longest time I was only interested in somthing around a 0 with a 285 and honestly it's one of the best options for these trucks to avoid things like this....

    No, @SCSPerformance Vin.

    I agree, the -38 is too agressive, and typically the exotic colors are only offered in that offset.

    I'd love the 17"x8.5 -10 Blaze10 in stealth indigo... but I can appreciate the fact they don't see it as a high demand offering. Ultimately saves me money... :D

    Ah I was thinking you may have been a local as they sell off I pile of scs wheels and regularly have ones from the limited runs.
