i have to agree the 22's are just too big plain and simple.

lexus is a classy-luxurious car and adding 22's takes away from that.

i have 20's on mine and i really dont think i would go any bigger.

20's are perfect for these big vehicles but 22's----no

Default 22 looks good

I must say that car dont look like a donk and didnt have to lift it fit was right on it was the correct off set how do I knw it was my car I was perfect I had 19 and 20 look to small I wasnt racing it so I didnt need to go young. People killed me what other people do to there car . I love it and that what counts . someone love it more then me and wanted and I sold it. Yes I agree with some people with having to lift a lexus all in the air I would never do 24 and 26 looks awful on that car.

There was one SC that had either 21" or 22", with RADIUSED fenders (Being the only way to pull this off and make it look decent) It was painted grey, with a fully red interior, and the rear of the kit was molded off of an Infiniti G35 kit... I repeat, the only way to make 22's look decent is by radiusing the fenders. Does anyone have the pics of that one SC?

Question any advice??

Stock 97 body on 20's


I recently ordered some wheels similar to some like these, i think they look really good but my car is all stock right now. I'm thinking of lowering it but i'm not sure how much i should lower it. I really want to go for something like this, something like right above the tire. Does anyone seem to know how much its lowered? or any advice what to go for?

^^ 20's are fine even on a stock 97 SC. 22's on the other hand will look like ****.

Well since thats my car I should be able to tell you how much its lowered I think I was dropped about 3" - 3.5" in that picture. you really need some drop to pull off the 20's. Man I miss my stock 97 body.

The SC is no Sports car. It's a large grand touring coupe.
