    I love the look of bronze wheels. Not many vehicle colors can pull off the bronze wheel but I think silver is one of them IMO

    agreed. I think I'll just keep my wheels and use the money to replace my POS Kenwood double din.

    I suppose it's OK but bronze looks much better with white, black, red, dark green or dark blue IMO. Never really cared much for silver and gold mixed together. Must be flashbacks of silly cars with mix of chrome trim and gold badges, lol. And that takes us back to the same thing for most threads, matter of personal preference. If you dig it, do it.....unless you're just out for popularity and acceptance. But that's a problem for another thread.

    TOO MUCH

    It works but IMHO it works 100x better with what the guy above you mentioned. I come from the Tuner world as well and I've owned a Silver Honda in the past and I don't like Bronze nor Gold on it.

    Bronze/Gold works best with colors like Black/White/RAD Red/Blue/Green.

    Silver is a boring color IMHO. No matter what I did to my previous Silver car. I could never get it to pop or stand out. I mean, I dumped a lot of money into my Honda as well.

    Thats why I went with a more Vicious color this time around.



    I've seen a 2012 Silver GT-R and 2012 STI Sedan and they look so boring. These same cars in a different color is Amazing.

    Here's some better pics of Krish's Tacoma with our SCS F-5 wheels. I think Silver looks good with bronze, but it has to be the right style of wheels.

    You could put purple wheels on that truck and it wouldn't make it look any less badass.
