Default Fuel Wheel Colors

I've been having a hard time finding a place locally with the Fuel wheels I am considering in stock. Computer photo pictures and real life can be a lot different. So looking for some people who have Fuel Wheels and what they think of the colors. I have a Sport Lithium Gray. I'd like to end up with something with a very similar gray to the running boards, as the stock rims are. Only think I really don't like about the stock wheels is the width and back spacing.

I really like the layout of the Fuel Beasts. Are the D564s, "Dark Tint" appears brown/oil rubbed bronze in pictures. Are they really brown? I'm considering the D62s, but I don't want any machined surfaces. One I don't like the upkeep, two the Sport Appearance has no chrome or shiny metal, so I don't think it will fit in.

I'm leaning towards the Podiums, D619 that are painted anthracite with a black lip. Looking at pictures online the anthracite looks close on the gray, but I have read it is darker in person. How close are they to the color of the stock step bars?

I'm not sure what your step bars look like, so the only comparison I can make is....Fuel's anthricite gray is a little lighter than Ford's magnetic gray.

Thank you. My brother in-law has the Magnetic Gray, and mine is slightly lighter in color.

I have the Fuel Beasts on my f150. I LOVE the way they look with the lightning blue. They do change color from a black to copper black depending on the lighting. ^^^pic of them on my sterling grey '13, too.

That was the impression I was getting of them being different colors in different shots for internet pictures. Thank you. I really, really like those rims, but with gray on gray on gray, I think I am going to go with something else. Trophy - D552 most likely.

This is my setup with fuel Trophys on a magnetic truck. I like the black inside with Grey beadlock, gives the wheel and tire a separation from the black.
