How do you like this interior/exterior color match-up?

Everyone loves to pick the shots with the interior blue over-saturated. If you've seen a Maverick in person it's a dark, subdued blue.

I am sure it does not look as bad as the pictures. I just did not want the contrast.

Boing! That is exactly the wheel I'm looking at for mine. Thanks for being the guinea pig :p
I was considering copy-catting, but are they really $290 a wheel? I've always gotten wheels for closer to $150 a wheel. 💸

For the financially-challenged (aka scrubs), these have a similar look and aren't too heavy:

BTW, on the Fifteen52s, I can't find a weight listed anywhere. Anyone know?

Those look fantastic on your truck!

I have never heard of this brand before, but it now has my interest.

Didn't see this before I posted. Exactly what I am looking at. No way am I paying $200+/wheel.

Check out their website. They make some great wheels. I love the car Tarmacs and the Turbomacs.

$200+ isn't really that unheard of a price for wheels, especially getting into chunkier "truck"-style designs and in a color that isn't silver/black. The ones I got were about $144 ea shipped but I had to paint them myself. They're available in (light) bronze but not in our bolt pattern. The DipYourCar Burnt Copper I had is a near match for the Lariat trim bronze.

I noticed during the pandemic that aftermarket wheels have jumped in price. The Sparco Terras aren't as bad a jump as, say, Methods.

They’re 25lbs but 17x8 vs 17x7.5 for that Sparco wheel

I know anything in China also has a tariff now, I think its 15%, which is like 99% of wheels now.

Oh ok, cool, thanks, so also not too bad. At that weight I assume they aren't fully forged or flow forged, and just your regular cast wheels?

Nice protip!

I am very aware that $200/wheel is nothing, but that doesn't mean it's worth it (to me). That's kind of the line in the sand I've drawn as far as my cost-benefit analysis. This would be our extra set of wheels for snow tires (which will be on 5-6 months a year), any more and I am looking for stock takeoffs or just getting some steelies.
