Looks great...and what a steal for new, unused wheels!

Let me know how the gunmetal P/C works for you, I'm headed to my powder coater tomorrow for Round 2 of trying to get my color right because I'm not pleased with how the first round turned out color-wise...they appear a gold-ish bronze in bright sunlight which fights the granite mica finish in my eyes.

Great idea on the centercaps, did you buy those from Lexus and what did they run you?

Thanks for the comments, I hope all works out with the powder coat and you get the colour your looking for! I grabbed the caps off of ebay for $110 original OEM parts.

This has probably been asked many times, but do you know how the 20" tires will affect ride quality? Will you lose the plush luxury feel?

So many people will say that the car will ride like crap but I have had many sets of 20" rims with low pro tires and they still ride fine, you do have to watch for pot holes a lot more but the overall ride isn't effected much. Anyone that's says different probably put rims on a car that drove like crap in the first place. I had 20s and coilovers on my es300 and I had so many people say that they look amazing but must drive like crap until I took them for a drive and they quickly changed there mind. That car was so smooth and handled well for a bigger sedan with such a drop.

Those look awesome...can't wait to see them mounted!

I went with a color called black chrome, mine should be ready either tomorrow or Wednesday:

Anyone know if I can get away with 8mm spacers in the rear without extended studs?

Is the backspacing different from our wheels...does it rub somewhere?

You should have at least 7/16" of thread engagement...which I still think you'd have even with the spacers, you're going to have to try them and see.

Lol I'm going to have tires installed today, the fitment is perfect I just want them to sit a little further out on the back to make them look wider in the wheel wells. The center caps came yesterday so it's go time!!!

Looks 1 million times better than that picture in your signature, gonna have to change that.

To me, the bright silver really cheapens the look of the darker-colored cars like ours or blue and black, looks good on the lighter cars though.
