XXR 527 Bronze color paint quality

Thinking on buying the xxr 527 in bronze colorway.

Any owners here can give some feed back on the quality of the paint/wheel?

I would keep the STI rims if I were you. WRB+Bronze doesn't look that good IMO.

LOL WAT?

That's only one of the most iconic colour combos in WRB history. Are you confusing either WRB or bronze with a different colour?

Notice how he says IMO at the end. It's his opinion aka to each their own.
And I thought it was gold that always goes with WRB? didn't really know bronze was also considered as an iconic combo with WRB.

And a wrong opinion is still wrong.

An opinion stated as an opinion cannot be wrong. An opinion stated as a fact is always wrong.

Ealier bronze models were known to chip. Supposedly they fixed the problem. They are a cheap wheel, don't expect them to be good. They are OK for that price range. I would suggest something a step up like Konig or enkei.
