If I remember correctly, you car is black. I am really not a fan of the Black on Black combo with rims, so #1 . Many 1st gen LS people have rim #2- like the looks, and the lip. might go well with the color of your car. #3 I have only seen on a limited few before. Your car has the aggressive stance to pull this one off nicely. My choice for YOUR car would probably be #3 to pull your look all together.

Well I would go with wald in the middle to finish it off. Black on black in my opinion is pretty much played out, but it does make the car look "hard".. The last rim, LOTC and BR1an already have. I think your car would look good with the wald streifens as seen on the ls430 wald vehicle.

just to clarify, BRIAN has DH's and those are DZ's (we did BRIAN's wheels).

I just love DH's with the monster lip on 1G LS's, thing is they have stepped lip in 20's. For all around (especially considering the price of the WALD wheels) I'd go for the DZ's in 20" with the reverse lip

I like all 3 but the 3rd rim is more inline with a first gen style for a rim. Meaning the squared hammerhead rim was more fashionable in the early 90's when the car was new just like miami vice. I love a older car with time reflective modifications.
Like an AE86 corolla with 14 inch gold honeycomb deep dish rims. It works unlike 18 inch chrome rims on them which are out of place.

I'm partial to the 3rd wheel, especially if you get the Black WALD center caps.. It will match your car nicely. On a side note, I love those curtains you put in your back seat.. adds a nice touch

I called the Work Euroline WALD's .. So let me rephrase. Go with the Wald Duchatelets, with the black center caps (its an older model I believe).
