Default Tee's LS460 SWB Build Pics & Vids Thread

Well it has been a long time coming and it is finally here, all of the going back in forth trying to figure out when my paper was right which direction i was going to go. Funny thing just when I thought I knew what wheels (Vossen CV-3 22') I was going to get, I ran across a flyer with a new wheel for 2012 from Savini wheels that I fell in love with...... I could not stop looking at and thinking about! I'm very happy how they look on the car, looking forward dropping her on Tanabes next month to really make her shine, now if I can get rid of this cold so I can really feel great all around. Here are some pics, vids and a special guest appearance from a member here who I surprised today.

savini looks great glad you went with a different look and it paid off, how are you liking the black sapphire pearl as I have the same color, doesn't look like it was a common color but looks great at night when you think it is balck and in the sun when the light hit it. You think there will be enough room when you drop it?????

Thx, love the color funny thing that happens all the time, people say I thought your car was black or I thought your car was blue, then I say it is or its both and I tell them the name of the color. Lexus only makes a certain amount of the color that are not black, white and silver, that is why it is rare you see them. Far as the drop yes i will have enough room due to it not being an aggressive drop.

So today I thought I was just going to help with this fool with his infamous Nike parking light issues.... instead this dude rolls up to my house with brand new shoes on the flagship!!! I fell out...how can anyone keep a project like this so top secret! I'm proud of my big bro Tee! His wheels look amazing and we had the whole neighborhood coming by looking at our cars in the driveway lol!!

These Kuhmo tires are great too and they make a 255/30 size so they may just be my next tire choice. His car looks on point without a drop also! I know he still wants to drop it though.. I ain't mad at him lol.

Car looks awesome and props on truly being one of the first cars in the country rolling on this style wheel..better yet, the first LS460!!

Ya did good big bro!!

LMAO! If I could have kept it a secret until the drop and our next meet I would have, but needed to get that nike light taken care of, I can't stand blown lights on my whip! Loving the Kuhmos highly reccomend them, thx again for your help today, the kind words, as always we have a blast mane!

Haha, j/k man..just wanted to say MOAR...actually while driving next to Tee's car, hardly any fender gap so take your time..those wheels and tire style combo do a great job with minimizing fender gapisitis
