    Hey guys I'm wanting to start saving up for some new wheels pretty soon and thought it would pretty unique to have some bronze rims on my mag gray sport. I love XD rims and they have an awesome bronze color. Has anyone done this? Post pics por favor if so :D

    I'm going to bump this old thread so I don't start a new one. Has anyone done this yet specifically with Konig Countersteers? Those TRD bro wheels look horrible against MGM but I believe the Konig wheels use a darker bronze color. HBMurphy's bronze Countersteers on his black truck and it looks pretty good.

    if you go with bronze wheels, it has to be a dark bronze to look right imo. check out your local powder coating shops and get some samples. i think you can pull it off.

    bronze on black is a WIN!

    Thank you.

    Yeah it needs to be a darker bronze than what came on those TRD wheels. I think the bronze Countersteer might be just right.
