    I have a black rig as well and was thinking about the bronze method wheels. They have a few styles and are priced pretty good.

    I like the method wheels but didn’t see any NV’s that fit an 80. Got a link?

    Isn't the F5 the only SCS wheel that's hub-centric to the FZJ80?

    After having too many sets of wheel, I’ll offer this as a “tiebreaker” in the great bronze/gunmetal debate:

    If you have a tan interior, go bronze.
    If you have grey, go gunmetal.

    The finished product seems way more cohesive IMO.

    I already threadcrapped the F5 thread with my BBS LM’s - they’re going on a Black (true black respray, not just Diamantschwarz) E30M3 with a black & M-technic cloth interior, so while bronze is cool, deep graphite for my centers/polished lips/black boltheads made more sense.

    Out of those, the gunmetal ray 10 is what I would go with. To me it seems nearly perfect for your 80. I really did them because they have the holes which somewhat match the curvy lines of an 80 in places. I have been kind of digging the FN Wheels/Konig Six Shooters lately, and thinking about a set of white letter out KM3s on them, but my current stuff still has a ways to go.

    I'm going for F5's in 17x8.5 in Gunmetal for the new 80 - had the 16"'s on my 40th and really liked them

    all good choices - just alot like choices of ice cream....on black I do like the way the Sr8's look for some reason...

    Beautiful!!! Are the wheels hubcentric or did you have to get them bored out?

    bronze on black is a sweet combo, but given that you have the grey LX cladding, i think gunmetal would be better. 3-different colors would be a little over the top, IMO.
