Not feeling those wheels.
As long as the owner likes them that's all that matters.

I agree, but I'm sure the car looks far more aggressive than before.

Since the car still has brightwork on it, I like to see a polished lip on the wheels or something. Maybe it's just the photo that makes everything seem so dark.

It is dark, not just the photos (although they do darken it a bit)... that's why I'm going to paint the calipers bright "aluminum" silver, high gloss, with grey "Lexus." It should brighten it up a bit...

I also added the mudguards (photos coming) which even makes it more aggressive... ;-)

Looks like a photo shoot is in the works for me...

Got it. I've attached a pic of my SGM IS350 (same color as your car) with the bright trim and polished lips just for fun.

They do not look like F-Sport wheels which are all hyper black

They are MRR GT1's 19". The are nearly as heavy as the cast 18" OEM wheels, not nearly as light as the F-Sport forged wheels.

So - the Fsport springs didn't explicitly list a GS460 fitment... After the snub from Lexus on the Fsport sways for the same reason, I decided not to take a risk... the TTE springs were listed as a fit for a GS460 and they work amazingly well! The car rides like a Japanese German vehicle.... Thanks for the positive comment!

I freakin' love it!!!!
