    Update: Got the rims and tires mounted yesterday. Overcast today, so they don't pop in the pictures like they do in the sun. What I do like about the flat bronze is that its quite dark in the shade, but pops and shows its glint in the sunlight. The shop didn't quite let them cure as long as they should have, so I have to get them redone. Not sure if its the powder or the rim material. Phenomenal looking though.

    Picked up the rims from the powder coater today. Can't say I've seen many like them. Enjoy, I know I will!

    Hmmm. I thought about doing this but the photochop didn't look so great.

    Maybe it was too light of a bronze? The ones in this thread might look better.

    Yeah darker bronze would look great on that.

    I like it, the darker tone is pretty cool. Not having the center caps on does alot for the looks. I've been eyeballing those bronze Level 8 Guardians, along with 265 65/17's.
