End of December I'm ordering some 16x8 method mesh rims. Trying to decide between machined finish and black. Or paint a dark matte bronze like on this Tacoma

My vote would be black. I've never been a fan of the bronze colored wheels personally, but you do what you like best.

My problem with black is you can never really see them. Dark bronze would give some contrast but not be to bright

If it were me black or machined, simple always looks best on "busy" trucks like ours

Those standards will look nice on your truck. Always liked how clean your truck is considering how much is on it

I'd like to see some rims photoshopped on my truck I guess. Anyone have anything so I can see it. I have not seen these rims on a ranger

Highly considering these rims, lighter weight, fake bead locks aren't reAlly necessary and the matte bronze that I've seen should look really good with red

I like them better in black, but at least it would be something different. Just order them already, lol

When I first saw the picture with just the rim, I didn't like it, but they look great on that Raptor. I like those over the other ones. Do they not have center caps?

Can't yet order them or I would. Preorder early 2015 so I'm just waiting. They don't have center caps as far as I know

Making a parts pile for now till I get my coilovers rebuilt. New moog inner tierods, black lightweight extended lug nuts for new wheels, 12" 800 lb eibach coil springs, and bronze skid plate for front diff and crossmember. Also disassembled my 8.8 and installed backing plates and caliper mounts. Removed rust and primed/ painted matte black

Did a lot of searching, found them on summit racing. Eibach does both red and silver but not every spring size and weight. These are 12" 800 pound springs.
