    I would say gunmetal but bronze would be cool, too.

    I used oil rubbed bronze on mine and they look bronze in the sunlight and black in the shade. But then I also painted another guys wheels black and they looked sweet afterward as well. So i second the bronze. But gunmetal or charcoal would be sweet.

    I like the idea of bronze. But black wheels on a white truck are always sexy.

    I like the contrast of black on a white truck. It matches a lot of other elements.
