Things have actually changed a bit in this department. Several companies offer a 1 piece forged, stronger, still can get custom color work, however, the wait time is still up there.

To answer your main question it won't be off-road much so I'd like a nice looking wheel that is different.

Black wheels are lame at this point- everyone has them. Even the OEMs are selling vehicles with all black wheels now. You know that look is tired when the OEMs start doing it.

The wheels shown in the first pic of the thread are perfect- get those. You'll like them even better in person, not less so.

Kind of the way I feel. I am thinking a brushed gunmetal or trying to figure out what color that is in the first picture. Looks almost AG

I have the wheels in the link below and I think they go great with a black truck. I don't even have the grey flares or bumpers anymore either, and they still look nice. I'm really glad I did not get black wheels. Hell, you might as well just get those for your truck too. They are designed specifically to fit a Raptor, work with the stock lugs, are made and the USA, and are cheap. What else do you need?

I'm so on the edge of getting the bronze method con6 wheels but worried how bronze will look with the grey. Your 3 pictures look great. Do you have any more pictures of the trunk in sunlight with those wheels. Truck looks amazing just need more help making this decision on getting bronze wheels.
