Ok. So I really like both of these wheels and am planning on going to a 20” x 9” or 10”. I have an Oxford white and I think that the bronze would look awesome. What’s your opinion on the rim colours and styles. ? 2.0” level kit and am also looking for suggested tire sizes.

Caveat….we do not need to get into the debate of rim sizes, thin or thick wheels, poser off road or anything like that. Just a simple question for your thoughts.

I once put "fake beadlock" wheels on my Jeep and ended up hating them and selling them off pretty quick. I'm not a fan of fake stuff.
 
I have white and have also been contemplating the bronze look. I think either would look great. When I get a set for my truck, I plan to stick with 18” wheels and run 295/70/18 for tire size ~34”. That would be around a 295/60/20 for what you’re looking to go with. What offset are you thinking? I think the fuel rebels are either +20 or +1.
 
I'd go with the black. If your after a "look", there are a lot more black accessories available then bronze. To me, the bronze would clash.
 
I always thought bronze looked better on dark trucks but I did bronze fuel rims on my white tremor and I thought it looked great. Compliments everywhere I went. Plus it almost matched the tremor logo on the bed which was kinda cool too but I'm turning into a bronze on light color trucks guy after this. Definitely turned out way better then I thought it would

I presume that the +20 sticks out quite a bit - maybe someone could clarify? no flares for me so I think the +1?

Thats what I was thinking. Its not too far away from the metallic orange. do you have a pic of that truck?

Experiment with this tool to give you a better visual.

Lower offsets stick out more despite looking like higher numbers should cause that.

Width also plays a role on exactly how the final product will look despite the truck scene (not you, just saying) seemingly ignoring that part and focusing only on offset.

If you’re going for a particular look, use that tool (along with finding real world examples) to get an idea of exactly how your end product will look.

To answer your question, I think both would look good and hide dirt well (compared to an all black wheel).

Bronze is popular and not quite played out yet. The gunmetal gives you the option to be a little more subdued if that’s your style.

I vote bronze as it’s a greater difference over the OEM wheel color.

great advice! thank you
 
Dare to be different! Skip the rebels.
 
Here is my Avalanche color with the Bronze wheels. We get compliments all the time. +20 will be flush,+1 will poke some. I did the -12 with the 295/70/18. A little rub while backing up and turning.

What about one of these Militia styles or cycle d835 Fuel wheels for something different.

Here's a pic of the Fuel Militias on Recon Grapplers, I think this is a pretty solid looking combo if you want to do something other than the Rebels that everyone seems to have.

I agree, you see them everywhere. I'm going back to stock wheels, and the 295/70/18 tire.
I do love the Rebels but the are the ‘23 version of KMC Rockstars. Good looking wheel that is almost as common now as OEM .
