Long time reader of clublexus.com and this is my first post! For the last 6 months or so I've been thinking about trading in my '08 SFP IS350 for an IS-F but decided to freshen-up my 350 instead. As my daily driver and the ~28 mpg average fuel milage I get with the 350, it's hard for me to justify the IS-F expense at this point.
So anyway, I've been researching the 19" LFA style wheels available on eBay. Not much detail found on these so I figured screw it, I'll jump in with both feet.
I ordered them from "bsd_direct" on eBay for $769.99 shipped. The color is listed as "Hyper Silver"; here are the specs:
F: 19x8.5-38mm: 25.5 lbs.
R: 19x9.5-38mm: 29.5 lbs.
The 18" stockers weigh 28.25 lbs.(F) and 30 lbs.(R) so not too bad for 19" and the price. The wheels were well packaged and the finish is quality:
I was surprised to see the wheels included Lexus knock-off center caps. I had already ordered silver OEM center caps so I won't be using them but they don't look too bad:
Here you can see the center cap comparison: knock-off on the left, OEM silver center cap installed in the wheel:
I'm planning 225/35-19 front and 255/35-19 rear tires. I've also got new F-Sport springs and front GFX lip to install and I'll post pics once she's rolling on these suckers!
