Does anyone have Level 8 Bully Pros? I'm looking at getting a set but in all of the pictures I see, the lugs and bolts that hold the scratch-ring look gold/yellow in color. I know it's just a zinc coating so I am trying to get an idea of just how gold/yellow they actually are and if they fade out to chrome color at all. Gold/yellow would not go good with my color scheme.

The lugs and hardware do not stand up to winter brine and salt too well, I keep mine washed at least once a week , and mine have started to corrode , knowing what I know now, I would have purchased black lugs, instead of the zink washed, in fact I already have replaced mine....(less than 6 mo. old)

are you referring to the lug-nuts or the little bolts that hold the scratch-ring? You replaced the wheels?

It's not just the salt, I noticed my lugs have started to corrode and my Jeep has not been north of Austin, TX. The lugs don't look horrible, but for less than 2,000 miles in a warm climate, they don't look new either.
I still love the wheels though.

Love the wheels, but the hardware is not very durable, lugs and rock ring fasteners, replaced the lugs and gonna look for some stainless rock ring screws once I find the correct thread pitch..

On a side note, Level 8 and DT replaced the rock ring fasteners under their finish warranty, great customer service.
