Default matte bronze 6ULs?

Hey Emilio,

I was on your website looking at the 15x8 wheels and one of the options is matte bronze for the coming production batch in August. I didn't see any announcements (since you are really good about updates) so I figured I'd ask at the source.

#1 Is it true?
#2 Machined lip?
#3 Any pics?

Emilio has a long thread (with a poll) RE: new 6UL colors at m.net.

I saw the poll and iirc antracite with machined lip was in the lead so curious as to why the bronze are a selectable option to add to cart for the coming shipment on his website. I figure it's either a mistake or he hasn't said anything yet.

I would be very disapointed if bronze becomes available over anthracite.

E-mailed Emilio and heard back today. Matte bronze is currently scheduled for production in next shipment ETA to be determined. No machined lip. He is awaiting a sample so no pics.

Cool. If the money fairy comes around, I'd like to get a 2nd set in bronze for the street, maybe use my nickles for track.

Still working on the anthracite. When I have a color I like, I'll do a limited run. Full matte bronze 15x8 are in production. Considering shuffling things to squeeze in some 15x9 matte bronze in the July run.

As much as I wanted to wait for the anthracite, I couldn't wait any longer and ordered a set of Silver 15X8 today for the '94.

It's a darker shade. Definitely not gold-like.

I don't know if its just that its new, but I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

Bronze is not a color I would order, but it does look very nice. I think that would look great on a white car.
