I think it would look better with different wheels are tires. To me that looks like its on wagon wheels, with the large spoke wheels and skinny tires. I think it needs a set of 6UL's and 50 tires.

205/50 on the bronze 6ULs would be sweet (except lowered as well, lol 4x4):

They definitely look better on some cars and worse on others.

Nothing will look good until you loose the 4x4 ride height.

it would look 10x better if you just get some more tire on that thing/lower it a tad more.

Once you do that, then look at the color ;p

The black wheels are the hotness on that car. Not digging the new tails though.

Yep, black. And I agree, not feeling the tails either. Maybe is they were the same color as the car...

I'm liking the bronze....but I am biased. He He....
Looks classy.
Black would also be choice color, and help with the size of those rims.
Darker always seems to look smaller (but you know this)
