    Bronze copper wheels

    Was hanging with Homero aka ChiTownMaraud3r last week and we were talking about ideas for a new wheel coating on the DTR. Preferably, I like coating the stock wheel over purchasing an aftermarket wheel because I dont want to compromise future plans for big brakes so he played with his photoshopping app to create what the DTR would look like. I'm feeling the gold or copper/bronze look. Whatcha think?

    Copper.

    Wheels are clear coated, have them painted. You can always change or reverse easily.

    I only have yellow fogs to compliment the coating if I pull the trigger.

    Personally I like the gold look, but here's the thing i've learned over the years.... if YOU LIKE IT, then do it. If you ask for advice you're going to run into people who will tell you not to do it because they don't like it. It's your car and make it your own and unique. Just don't put Lambo doors on your DTR

    Well since you asked....Crap, they look like cheap Crap. Might look better on another model of car or truck.
