i like the lfa rims, but in case nooone knew....the 4 BARE rims weigh about 120lb thats not even including tires so i would personally pass as they super heavy

What do you propose? If the guy wants LFA looking wheels, this is probably the only option. Not like LFA owners are getting rid of their wheels (and I doubt anyone ever will because a car of this caliber loses value if not in original condition at the time of sale). Usually, I'd say no to replicas too, but this is different.

Ya but the LFA is 20x9.5 front and 20x11.5 rear. 120lbs for the set in that size is not really that bad. there are WAY more wheels that weigh more than that in that size. I have noticed out of all the BBS forged wheels I've sold they are actually not that light at all.

This would be purely cosmetic, who cares about weight. Do people really honestly care about weight? Sure some do, but c'mon lets think about it. A GS is not exactly your typical sports car, you're not gonna gut the interior put in a roll cage, big GT wing and tune it to full race specs. If fact most of us try to put the biggest, fattest setups possible with big faced wheels like Work Euroline DH's that weigh like 50lbs LOL. Last I checked you dont get lighter by going with bigger wheels LOL. I'm sure those who do want a light weight wheel would do their research and choose an appropriate rim

Well they now offer these wheels in staggered fitment , but still have yet to see anyone using them. I still see a lot of the 2IS and 3GS wheels.

It's been about 6 months now. Anyone rocking these yet? Pics pics pics!!

+1 I was thinking the same thing, plus when the wheels are on the car and looking good who really cares, but to each his own.

So I've searched and searched but haven't seen anyone running these LFA "style" wheels yet. Any pics of them on a GS?

I think they look good I was going to get a set for my self. I was also wating for someone to get them first so I could find out how they look. The chances of finding some real LFA wheels is next to none and do the LFA's even have the same bolt pattern?

LFA wheels look better off a 2GS than on, imho.
