Default Black Wheels on a Silver LS430



I am thinking of throwing some black 20 Zenetti Flows in my LS430.

Thoughts...

IMHO, If you did that, then you would have to make all your trim black / black chrome too. I got a silver LS430 and am debating on whether or not to go with chrome or silver / polished.

20s on an LS would look retarded, respect the intentions of the car and the design of its chassis

20s on ls430 is no problem with a nice drop. 20s work out perfect for the gs, with the ls430 being bigger it will look good

dont drop that car, it's suspension was designed for that ground clearance, so unless you have a toyota chassis engineer staying in your guest house, just leave it as it is

some professionals know how to work well with this, but most make a mess of a car's chassis dynamics

that is, unless you dont care about how your car handles or how your suspension behaves

only my 2 pence

And what year is your LS430
And what size wheels do you have

My point exactly, dont make comments you know nothing about.

and why are you turning this into a disucssion about me?

this is common sense for anybody who knows anything about cars and suspension/chassis dynamics, a set of people that you are assumed to not be among

Again most of the people here are Club lexus are enthusiast who are into personalizing their cars. You are a person who believes the car is perfect the way it is from the factory.
Because we are different, please respect someones wishes to change the look of their car if they choose to. Do not come on this forum and bash our choices of Mods we prefer. To the last comment made about me I won't reply, but I am a Vendor here on CL and most members do consult D2Autosport for info about their vehicles.
