    Yeah, I don't think 245 would stick out at all.

    Black on your blue would look good I think. I've never really liked bronze on blue, and I think MGM would look even weirder.

    MGM would look weird because of my light grey interior and skid plate.

    I love bronze on blue but i have no other bronze accents and it would end up making me doubtful that i liked it.

    Black is what i'm leaning towards but my truck is already hotter than the devil's sweaty taint. (For lack of better description)

    Hey AR, I just thought of something. I would make sure that a 245 tire is wide enough for this rim. The wheel is 8 inch wide. Most tire sites have a list of all the manufacturers tires and what wheel width they necessitate. I'm thinking 245 might be too skinny for this wheel, I might be wrong though. Depends on the tire you go with, just double check.

    As far as color goes, I really struggled with whether or not I wanted a bronze or MGM/gunmetal wheel. The bronze looks awesome on black or blue trucks in opinion.

    Mine will fit 6-8" already checked.

    Thats why i couldn't go with the level 8 guardians (they are 8.5")


    As for now, black is all i can find on ebay in the size that i want :(

    They don't make it easy to navigate, i should be able to search by wheel model and size :pout:

    I haven't seen the sticker/decals in person, but I think that is correct. Measure the 8 on the center cap to make sure. The decal won't cover the entire cap, just the 8. Here is what it would look like (from a 4runner forum):

    Agreed. The ebay store isn't easy to navigate. You have to make sure to double check what you've selected, but the price is worth it. Watch out too, they like to sell wheels in pairs. So, you'd only want to order 2 units (2 pairs of wheels).

    Doesn't seem cost effective....makes more sense to have one transaction

    I got the TRD center caps in today. It's gloomy and rainy, but here are two pics in my garage with new caps on. Don't know why the photos are rotated.

    I'm guessing your truck is MGM?

    Love the look. Still can't decide on bronze or black :(

    I decided to try the decals first. I think they're on the slow boat from Taiwan.

    Here are my MK6's, 0 offset:
