Default after market wheels for 2014 GX?

I'm thinking of getting some aftermarket wheels for my 2014 GX. I'm looking for a larger size wheel maybe 19-20" in a dark grey\titanium color. Anyone have recommendations?

Maybe the 2014 4runner wheels would fit?

thanks

4runner wheels will fit, but dont put any 20 inch rims on it. they are only 7" wide and too narrow for the gx. u need a rim atleast 7.5" wide for a tire width minimum 265. I would suggest the old style 18 inch 4runner limited rims from 2006-2009 MY.

4runner wheels do not have the proper back spacing to look right on the vehicle. If you want to get out cheap I would suggest picking up a set of F sport Gx460 wheels on Ebay for about $1,100 new. That way you can use your current tires and not be out tons of cash. Plus you could sell your current wheels if there the base model around $500 if premium model they will bring quite a bit more.

4runner wheels have same offset as gx rims only difference is diameter.
what are you referring too? They are perfectly interchangeable along with FJ cruiser rims and dealers have chromed the old style 4runner limited rims and sold them on the gx.

I don't know that for a fact. But they do not look right on a GX too narrow looking.

^ I agree, too narrow. Even on my 4runner limited it looks narrow.

Take it from me, I am not really pleased with the results (that's my car in the picture). They look too narrow on the car, and IMO my handling performance has suffered. I did it because buying new blizzaks for my stock wheels would have been more expensive than buying 4Runner OEM wheels to fit my <1 year old Blizzaks that fit my OEM 4Runner wheels.

I do however, believe that in the year 2014, 18 inch wheels on a 5300 pound SUV look too small. So I will be getting an aftermarket set of 20s come the summer and use my stock 18s to mount some Blizzaks. The GX is an awesome car, and deserves to have a bit more street presence.

I have some concerns about width though, whether or not some 20x8 or 8.5s would fit without rubbing. I would love to hear from someone who has done it and see some pictures. There aren't a lot of dressed up GX460s out there at all.

You can probably find quite a bit of relevant pictures in this thread too: http://club-lexus.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39225

The GX/LX are indeed a lot more popular in Russia than here - you can see them everywhere alongside with Prado and Land Cruisers.

I never thought the day would come when I am looking to Russians for style inspiration.....but IMO this is what a stock GX should look like.

I've looked high and low and have never been able to find a bolt on kit, it must be custom. Since the LS has dual why doesn't the GX?
