Default Anyone here using LFA wheels?

Just wondering if any members here have installed the 19" LFA reps? I was curious if they would suit a 2GS or not. I know some people frown on replicas especially since the originals are forged by BBS, but I highly doubt anyone is gonna find a used set of authentic once anytime soon, and if so they would probably be priced 5k+. Also the original LFA wheels are staggered 20's, personally I think the 19's fit nicer, its too bad they aren't available staggered . The reps are available in silver, Gunmetal or Matte Black. Photoshop anyone?

Looks good I think. For that price I would say it's not too bad. I'm all for the OEM/sleeper stealth look sometimes.

I know what you mean, I don't support knock-off aftermarket rims, OEM rims on the other hand I don't really care as much. Its not like you're going to find a used set anytime soon. They're not exactly just roaming around in the street. I still have yet to see one in person

I just want a nice set of OEM style rims as my second set. I currently sold my OEM 17" 5 spoke chrome rims and bought some newer SC430 rims. After putting them on the car I wasnt too crazy on the look.



So I took the center part out and stripped the paint so it would be chrome in the center. I admit I think they look much better with the chrome centers but still doesn't float my boat. If I don't so the LFA wheels I'll get the 3GS 5 spoke wheels




And then I was wondering how it would look if the rim itself was painted black with a chrome center. And low and behold I find this...


I think this would match really well... but still not certain if i'm sold on it or not
