Default Any pictures of Nickel 6ul's on Green NB's?

So i've been wanting them forever. I always miss the used deals which dont happen too often, but i'm tired of waiting for the XTR's. I have seen a ton of pictures of bronze wheels on green NB's but I have not seen to many photos of Nickel 6uls.
Does anyone have any? I've seen 1 on the Miata.net.

Yeah i've going through the whole thread for months now. Today I went through it again and only saw one green NB with nickle. towards the end.



I'm leaning towards the bronze.

Wish I would have seen your 15x8 black 6ul's for sale earlier this year. Hate not being able to check stuff during the day.

I have bronze and nickel. The bronze is a little juvenile but looks great. The nickel is gorgeous, refined, and gets lots of compliments; no one compliments the bronze wheels for whatever reason, and I'm really concerned with what people think. I want to get a set of silver, I think it will look better than the bronze...or go halvsies and run silver on one side, bronze on the other at the track. I got a little tired of the bronze over the last year, nickel is classic and will always look good.

I actually I was not doing it for looks. I was trying decide which one would get me less looks, thus that is why I have been looking at the different colors. IF i cared about looks I would be hellastanced on sportmaxx's with a 0 offset.

I guess I should not worry about the finish so much if I am going to race on them anyway and use one of my other sets of wheels for the street.

But I'll take your cryptic message as a nod to the nickle.

You failed at his win.

If you are lazy and run a dusty pad, get bronze. If you don't mind cleaning them constantly, get nickel.

pulled the trigger on some 15x8's in silvers about 30 seconds ago. The autoX last week did me in. I know 9>8 but I feel that a 8 was a better choice for me.

Time to sell some of my 3 sets of wheels that are in the garage right now. I have a feeling that I will DD and autoX on the 6uls.

Are the Nickels "hella bling and rollin on 20's" in person?" Looking at the 6UL but don't want to go all xzibit and rollin on chrome.
