    Love 'em. I've thought about painting my wheels a dark bronze.

    I used to own a subaru sti though....so maybe I'm biased.

    I personally only like them on the white Taco.

    mgibilisco, a TW member has that combo.

    I am not a big fan of the white truck OR the gold wheels, but there is some synergy going on when you put them together... :cool:

    Speedway blue would be choice #2 for me...

    ^2 I was thinking the same, on white maybe red, they would look good, not so sure about on the Speed Way Blue. But if you like it, go for it.

    Maybe if the whole wheel were bronze, that would look pretty cool.

    I like that better, just the silver and bronze aren't a good mix.

    Black beadlocks would look a lot better IMHO. It all looks great except for that

    The ring is easy to take off, I used a rattle can to paint my rings makes touch up really easy and its cheap.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I think these are the sickest factory Toyota wheels out. They will look good with the blue
