A lot of people on my IG were telling me how I should have went Vip Modular, Avant Garde, blah blah blah! I'm not the norm and I tend to just do my own style. I love a lot of the "vip" wheels with the deep dish and crazy offsets but it's just expected to do that to an LS430. I just wanted a sporty and classy look.

As far as the neck pillows go they are hard as a rock . I'm still trying to figure out the best position as they fit awkwardly under my neck and I'm not even that tall. Ive repositioned it a few times and can't get the perfect fit. Might just be more for looks. I did see on eBay awhile back some suede ones that were memory foam... that probably would have been a better choice. I got suckered into brand loyalty.

I love the way the Volks look on the LS. There was another guy who ran the same wheels on his LS and it really gives the car a sporty look.

My Junction Produce neck pillows are hard as a rock too. They're so uncomfortable.

That's a good call you made. The neck pads are terrible.

I've seen a couple online and a couple with Varrstoens. I've always felt the TEs would look good on any car. It's probably my favorite wheel of all time. I never thought I would own a set.

Good call. I honestly should have asked around. I think unless you're a certain height and fit in the seat a certain way regardless of what brand the neck pillows are awkward lol.

You are paying top dollar for the letters J & P being sewn into cheap leather. Even from the pictures they don't look comfortable. I'm also in Atlanta nDrew. We should meet up one of these days.

JP pillows are synthetic leather, vinyl.

And they are absolutely awkward unless you're a good height, and sit a certain way. They happen to fit me nicely, and I can tell you that they do soften up over time. The back seat is a whole other issue, I don't know if anyone can sit with them comfortably, the seat backs are too upright. The pads are very large.

I was thinking of substituting memory foam into mine to make them even softer.

The TE's really do look good on any car. I wish they weren't so expensive otherwise I would get a set for my SC300.

They do seem really awkward, especially if you try them in the back seat.

That pretty much sums up Junction Produce. I've got some pillows too and I wasn't too impressed by them either. It's like cheap eBay crap with a nice logo on it and a massive price tag.

I got a really really really good price on the TEs...

Regarding the JP neck pillows L-Tuned had them for $25 a piece which is right around what non-name brand ones go for. Who knows maybe i'll put weights on top to flatten them out or swap out the insides for memory foam.

They are awkward though.
