Your best bet is to find a g35 and steal the rims when it's dark. Or just find them on craigslist. I'm not sure what they go for though.

Default 2013+ Lexus GS Wheels

Bought these off a guy who had them on his SC300. They look good on any SC I say.

GS wheels

Anyone know what the lightest stock wheels would be, my guess would be a 240sx but they are kinda small. Also didn't see many bmw wheels, are they not the same bolt pattern? Some old m3 wheels might look kinda nice on our cars, but just about any wheel does especially when dropped. I recently saw some 18" hyundai genesis sport wheels on an sc and it looked really good not even lowered!

BMW uses a 5x120 lug pattern, so the only lexus that can use BMW wheels is the LS460. You can buy an adapter (which is 25 or 32mm thick) to convert the lug pattern or have the wheels redrilled to fit on the SC.

I've always found it odd that the LS460 has a 5x120 lug pattern. Wonder what the reasoning was to change it from the standard 5x114 on the LS430.

Did the hub get bigger to handle more torque, making 5x114.3 too tight of a pattern? That's the only thing I can think of.

The LFA comes with 5x114, but the LS is much heavier. Probably just over-engineering the LS to handle more torque like you said.

The only thing I could think of is they wanted to use larger wheel studs on the LS460 for the extra weight. Most cars that use M14 wheel studs are 5x120.
