Default Where to buy Rims

Would anyone know where I can find some nice 22'' rims for my 2011 gx460. I looked around online but not much to choose from...im trying to find black or graphite. something similar to these wheels...but these wheels don't fit my car...

Carid.com is a good site to find options.

Has anyone bought a set of tires and wheels from CarId.com that would share their experience about them?
Their ordering system is really good with the ability to buy all kinds of size combinations that aren't exactly OEM but are well specified... Also they have them road-force balanced, nitrogen-filled, and will put TPMS sensors in them for an extra $106 or so... Sounds like it should be an out-the-door solution for decent prices and with great website for viewing/researching your choices: I just wonder if it all comes together as advertised, or has it been found lacking? Thanks,
Zeebra

Very nice rides, VERY nice wheels. I love the look on your GX, Very nice but I could never run that tall of a wheel, I do go lightly off road with mine, drive over an occasional curb or 2 and I would hate the ride quality loss of running that tall of a wheel. But, with all that being said, it looks great!

your wheels look good. I wish they had fatter 6 spoke split design like on current LX.
Most of aftermarket wheels for our gx are tacky. The best ive seen is from the outfitter KHANN from russia. And that rim above is 5 lug nut for LX, not our GX

I would suggest looking for 22" 4Runner rims. Probably a lot more hits with that search.

Just to piggyback Lolrax...I'm curious what your impressions are with ride quality compared to the stock setup.

Sorry for the hiatus, I was on vacation..... So to answer your question....

I actually bought the wheels off of the net/web., there were a random companies wheel & thought they would look good on the my GX Gen 1 & now Gen 2....

The name of the wheels on the center cap was White Diamond Edition, I took those off & put Lexus decals so now they are just Lexus wheels to me. . .

The ride quality is pretty good... Ride is a little more stiff than average but I like that & part of the ride also depends on the tire size you put on the wheel/car...
