Default Nickel or Bronze?????

Guys i can't decide between nickel or bronze 6ul's
I have a red 1995, street and autox use.

I was thinking bronze, then saw levnuhbins with nickel and fell in love, my paint isn't in great shape, so the nickels might look bad without a great red pain job.

Vote!

Nickel is timeless, bronze is "youthful exuberance".

I like Bronze better, especially on a red car. However if you want somthing different, then maybe you should go for the nickel, they seem less common. Haven't found a pic of a red NA w/ Nickel 6UL's, found some w/ silver 6UL's though.

Resale value might be better on nickel. Although 6uls hold their value really well anyways.

Nickel. I had bronze 6uls on my blue 99. I did like them on that car. Once I decided to go to titanium I had to go to nickel. So, if (when) you switch Miatas, you can rest assured that the nickel goes with everything. I have since sold my bronze and bought six nickels. Two extra for drag radials FTW.

I may sell my first gen wheels pending a fitment test with my new brakes later today.

I like my bronze track wheels, but my next set will be silver to match my ultra-stylish lettering. Then, after I have those Silver wheels, I'll start running bronze on one side, silver on the other. COME AT ME BRO!!!

I voted Bronze because of brake dust. Within a day of driving, the nickle wheels are black with a hint of nickle.
